I have noticed that when building apps (via gcc for example) that my free 
RAM (seen via 'top') is diminishing down to almost nothing...

Is it going to buffer space?

it looks like at this rate, I will start swapping soon...

Any comments or any way to change this behavior?

..I dont remember this 'issue' on 4.9....
