ahh... webkit. do you have a system anywhere that has 2gb of RAM?
if not, i strongly strongly advise skipping the debug builds on any
as webkit is mostly c++ and as pretty much everything goes into one
massive library with hundreds of object files that are very closely
inter-dependent, linking the library requires a whopping 1.5gb of
*resident* memory in order to complete within a reasonable amount of
anything outside of that - even by a marginal amount - will result in
the build machine absolutely thrashing its nuts off.
1gb is not enough (tried it...). 1.5gb will not be enough. 2gb is
the bare minimum for the link stage.
if you absolutely absolutely must have the debug builds, but there is
nowhere in the world any ARM Cortex A8/9 system with 2gb of RAM, i
strongly advise you to not mess about, and use cross-compiling.
please feel free to entirely ignore this advice however and pursue
whatever you wish.
