Perhaps not. But perhaps there are workarounds that allow the gcc
build to do its job without using binutils in a way that stresses it
beyond its ability to cope.
Matt's time output suggests that massive pagefaulting is a big issue
-- and it wouldn't surprise me if the libjava build procedure were a
major contributor there.
