FWIW, I have an ABIT-BP6 (2x433) with 256MB of ECC SDRAM (CAS 2) that doesn't
seem have a problem with "too much RAM" and SOFTDEP.  I am even using the
experimental cpu spinup code.  

Do you have a specific test case that blows up?  I have no difficulties
(currently!) running 'make build' repeatedly, etc.
