I'm not sure about linking, since I can't build xulrunner yet, but on my
64 mb arm box (bitsyxb with a USB disk), I'm seeing some very slow (12
hours) gcc runs. It mostly seems to be due to gcc using so much ram for
compiles of large files that it thrashes swap.

Compiling arts with 4.1:

Cpu(s):  0.3%us,  3.0%sy,  0.0%ni,  0.0%id, 96.7%wa,  0.0%hi,  0.0%si,  0.0%st

16936 root      18   0 76608  43m  836 D  1.3 73.0   1:33.59 cc1plus

If it was able to use more than 2% of the cpu for compiling, perhaps the
compile wouldn't take 12+ hours.

I've tried with gcc 4.0 and it doesn't seem any better though, RSS is
just as high and CPU usage just as low. BTW, even more memory (140 mb) is
used on i386 for the same build.
