I'm trying to compile glibc natively using my 64-bit kernel, but it fails with
the following message:

Out of Memory: Killed process 641 (qmgr).
Out of Memory: Killed process 642 (tlsmgr).
Out of Memory: Killed process 378 (portmap).
Out of Memory: Killed process 9363 (cc1).
Out of Memory: Killed process 9363 (cc1).

So there may be a memory leak problem in 64-bit kernel.
Has anyone seen this ?
