Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that
curiosity killed the cat, I say only that the cat died nobly.

I'm trying to compile gdbm-1.11 on NetBSD-6.99.41/amd64 using "gcc
(NetBSD nb2 20140304) 4.8.3" and the standard "./configure && make".
When I do that on a 6GB partition, it quickly stops with "file system
full", so I tried on a bigger partition.
After it was taking longer than I expected, I stoppped the process after
# ll src/gdbmtool.o
-rw-rw-r-- 1 wiz users 549755886467 May 23 10:54 src/gdbmtool.o
du -sh on the whole gdbm-1.11 tree says "2.3G", so the 500GB probably contains
The assembler process doesn't look too bad, sizewise:
11465 wiz 85 0 30M 9504K STOP 0:06 0.00% 0.00% as
# as --version
GNU assembler (NetBSD Binutils nb1) 2.23.2
When I interrupt at this point, I get a zombie as:
wiz 11465 0.0 0.0 0 0 pts/3 Z - 0:00.00 (as)
and "du -sh" on the tree hangs.
I've also tried with "clang version 3.5 (trunk 202566)", and stopped
# ll src/gdbmtool.o-4c09db31
-rw-rw-r-- 1 wiz users 665387008 May 23 11:29 src/gdbmtool.o-4c09db31
du -sh says on the whole gdbm-1.11 tree says "641M" at that point.
When I interrupt here, the temporary .o file is deleted and the tree
is back down to 6.1M.
I don't think these files should grow that big.
Note: configure adds "-g -O2" to the compiler flags when it finds gcc,
but even if I change that to "", I have the same problem.
Note2: If you let gcc run too long, you have a very big file that
will take ages to delete if you have log enabled, or might hang
your machine. You have been warned.
