Bootstrap failure on darwin 7.4.0 due to memory exhaution

I have been unable to bootstrap mainline on darwin building just the C and Ada frontends. The stage1 Ada compiler seems to use memory without bound (generally crashing my machine too).

I'm not sure if bootstrapping ada is supposed to work on any particular platform yet. I did have to manually add "ada" to the BOOT_LANGUAGES variable in gcc/Makefile after configuration. Is there some special incantation needed?

Platform: powerpc-apple-darwin7.4.0
Bootstrap compiler: gcc 3.3 with gnat enabled by these guys <>
Memory: 1GB RAM and ~ 900MB free space for vm
configured with: /Volumes/UnixSource/gnu/gcc-stuff/gcc-HEAD/configure --prefix=/opt/test/gcc-3.5 --enable-libada --disable-nls --enable-languages=c,ada

Here's the end of last night's log:
