Thank you for all the help (including off-list) with the key
suggestion that the build machine needs to have more than 1GiB RAM to
run the new xz compression for iso production (in lorax) - after
receiving a 1GiB RAM extension giving a total RAM of 1.5 GiB, and
starting with a clean mock chroot in my build machine running F14, a
new build of F15 today proceeded without error and produced good
install isos.

Thank you for all the help. I am running gold builds again now.
