Question: anyone ever seen a -9 exit code from jarjar, when trying to bootstrap Zinc (in a new repo)? Googling doesn't come up with much. I have a playground repo on github (personal pet project, not related to Square work), and just updated it to use pants (works great on my laptop). But it blows up trying to bootstrap its tools in travis. On @ancient-stone-50795's advice, I copied some stuff from pantsbuild/pants' travis config, but that didn't help. Here's a link to the failed build. I turned up debug output, but there's nothing useful. Nothing written to stdout or stderr. It just exits with -9. TravisCI's docs suggest the error would be different if the build ran out of resources.
