Yes, that was the problem. It's been corrected in the CVS tree already so
I'm trying a newer CVS snapshot. So far, it built just fine, now I'm
running the testsuite (ugh).

Well, that won't be a problem for me to build at all (the dual EV6 I have
access to has 1GB RAM) and once it's built, it's built. Most people won't
want to recompile it themselves and those who do would probably have more
RAM any way (fingers crossed...besides, on my old UDB, which did most of
the work on slink, it took nearly a day to compile gcc anyway).
