That would have been plausible, but at the time it crashed I had
verified /var/log/messages and didn't see OOM problems, although there
was messages such as:

Jul 16 17:55:29 localhost vmunix: [ 1222.229040] perf: interrupt took too long 
(6239 > 6227), lowering kernel.perf_event_max_sample_rate to 32000
Jul 16 18:00:16 localhost vmunix: [ 1509.558118] perf: interrupt took
too long (7800 > 7798), lowering kernel.perf_event_max_sample_rate to

which I attributed to the high system load.

Further removing the possibility that it was an out-of-memory issue is
that last night I could successfully build libreoffice after I took out
the -c 1 and -M 1 flags. This should have made the memory requirements
even higher but it made it through the compilation, and only failed to
install due to unrelated issues in my profile:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
starting phase `reset-gzip-timestamps'
phase `reset-gzip-timestamps' succeeded after 0.4 seconds
starting phase `compress-documentation'
phase `compress-documentation' succeeded after 0.0 seconds
The following package will be installed:

guix package: error: profile contains conflicting entries for gtk+:out
guix package: error:   first entry: address@hidden:out 
guix package: error:    ... propagated from address@hidden
guix package: error:   second entry: address@hidden:out 
guix package: error:    ... propagated from address@hidden
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

So it's possible that the problem is only exhibited when building
Libreoffice with a single core although that seems unlikely. I will
retry the build with the -c 1 and -M 1 flags and see if I can reproduce
the problem.
