[Clfs-support] GCC memory exhaustion

I have been trying to compile gcc-4.3.0 in chapter 5 (x86_64 first pass)
without success. The problem is that it eats up all my memory doing
this, causing the host machine to freeze and crash. My host has 1GB of
RAM and 5G of swap.

I have tried to pass the option "--with-low-memory", but this doesn't
seem to make much difference.

Anybody have experienced the same behavior?

Thank-you, Hugo Villeneuve
