I disabled that on the other buildds.

What you should do however IMHO is to code an memory check at the
start of the building process, and abort if the available memory isn't

(Also, we should gain some process to centrally disable packages per
buildd - if someone feels inclined to define a good syntax for doing
so transparent, and with building classes of buildds like that I can
say "build this package only on buildds with at least ... memory"),
that would be appreciated.)
