A 3.1.1 build --with-gc=simple worked on the alpha-dec-osf4.0f that
previously had failed with "virtual memory exhausted".
After increasing the Kernel parameters as suggested by sys_check
a 3.2 build has worked with default configure options.
I didn't find the makefile target to check the changed install.texi with.

      * doc/install.texi (Specific, alpha*-dec-osf*):
      "virtual memory exhausted" workarounds. Bump binutils version.
