  I've been cross-building fine on x86 so I don't think there's any 
issue with the source tree.

  Would you be able to run 'top' during the build and see if memory is 
heading toward being exhausted (or running into swap) ?

  My 512M mini is finally powered up so I'll try a build on that 
(limiting mem to 256M with hw.physmem).
