Well I've run 1.5 on a 4000/60 with 104MB and it worked fine. It was my 
build machine until I switched over to a 4000/90. To track down your panic 
several bits of information are necessary
         1) What kernel and userland are you running?
         2) Where did the kernel panic?
         3) What part of the kernel build process was it in?
         4) Did you try filling memory some other way to see if that 
panic'd it?
         5) How confident are you in your RAM?
         6) Do you have the latest toolchain?
