I don't think it's a swap problem. I've not seen the machine go much  
in the swap while running the build, but I've not checked since the  
failure appeared.
I was sort of hoping the issue will resovle itself when the size of  
the link would change again...

What kind of ulimit did you think of ?
I'll try upping the data segment size.

I'll try that.
