Thanks for the reply.

I didn't run X or whatsoever. That's why I think I should have enough memory.
In fact after getting that error, I rebooted so I could update the
ports from a "fresh"
running system (nothing cached or so). But even in that case, I'm getting the
same error.

Any VM tuning I can try?
