I built pkgdepgraph from a recent (within the two weeks) CVS checkout of =
sources.=A0 It consistently fails out with an =93out of memory=94 =
message followed
soon after by dropping back to a command line prompt.

I have watched the memory usage on the machine and can see the FREE =
steadily drop from over 200MB (with virtually nothing else going on) =
around 14MB or so at which point the =93out of memory=94 message is =
and the program craps out.

I have tried running the commands (following the steps outlined in the
pkgdepgraph man pages) both within X, as well as from a command line =
after a
boot, where nothing but system daemons are running.

The system in question is presently running NetBSD 1.6.2 on a =
SPARCstation 5
with 256MB of RAM.

Thanks for any help,
