Yes, I think I remember seeing something along those lines with my own
Jornada 728.  While I don't remember exactly what the symptoms were,
the build failed, running out of swap at some point.

I simply configured 32 or 64 MB of swap over NFS, and it built.  I'm
sure you can do that too.  It makes the build slightly slower, but at
least it finishes :)
