If the virtual Linux has 128 megs of ram, then it should be able
to compile lilypond.  I used to do that, and our build system
hasn't changed that much since then.

Not to discourage this whole endeavor, but this can be kind-of
done already -- you use the last binary rather than compiling
lilyond from source, but as long as there's no syntax updates, it
works just fine.  I've done this for years (yes, even during
GDP!), and Trevor still does this.

AU 1.2.4 Building the docs without compiling, I belive it is.
