Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't.

This error is from the PaX kernel, you should find it in syslogs too. 
Recompile Zip, but edit the Makefile. Remove the -DASM stuff from the cflags. 
I think Mozilla will also need -fno-stack-protector to work, but this might 
not be enough. If I remember correctly I never got Mozilla working with hlfs. 
If you want to experiment maybe try using -no-pie too. Mozilla has something 
like --enable-optimize="something" option; you can use 
--enable-optimize="-fno-stack-protector -no-pie". I'm still not sure if this 
will work though.
