I know I've seen make's footprint get huge when doing libc. On
machines with comparatively small data size limits I've known it to run
out of space and die. Restarting usually works in these circumstances,
even without raising the data size limit - apparently it's
memory-cheaper to check but not build stuff than to build it.
I've long suspected a memory leak somewhere but haven't been quite
motivated enough to dig into it and see for sure.
