Do you actually run out of memory? Check the disk space also, that thing
grows to many GiBs.

The memory bug seems to be x32-related (not just windoze though), and
apparently you can sidestep it by using gold:

# On IA32, use gold since GNU ld runs out of memory linking libxul.so
export CC="gcc -B$(path to)/gold"
export CXX="g++ -B$(path to)/gold"

or something along these lines. Never actually had to do anything like
that myself, and not at all sure this will fix anything.

Good luck :)
