So far, I've tested mozjs60 like that (i.e. try without, if it fails mount /run as just a tmpfs and retry), and am now testing seamonkey which definitely also needs this approach.
I'll follow up on -dev in a day or more when I've finished testing (will not test node-js, I could not find anything in strace output from JS60, only the failure while writing config.log, so I am going to assume that node will work adequately if built in chroot even if /run is not mounted). ĸen -- When alle is ſayed and all is done, ye must chooſe your faces wisely, for soon enouff ye will be playing with fyre."
