It looks like emulators/mame should be marked broken for the likes
of armv7 (and armv6) because of process size limitations for armv7
(or armv6).

From an attempted poudreire bulk -a that is ongoing:

[42:47:44] [10] [20:53:04] Finished emulators/mame | mame-0.226_1: Failed: build

This is a HoneyComb with 16 Cortex-A72's and 64 GiBytes of RAM.
So lots of room for processes limited to 4 GiBytes or less.
According to the top instance that I've been monitoring with, so
far the swap/paging space is unused.
