I am trying to build www/seamonkey on an old laptop. I realize that this
is far from an optimal situation to begin with, but all of my fast systems
are amd64 and i need an i386 build for the laptop. i can't just install a
package because i really want to strip out as much of the unused features
& bloat as possible. not ready to tor figuring out amd64 -> i386 cross
build in ports yet.

In any case the build proceeds normally until it gets to

i believe this file exposes a clang bug...

once this source file is reached, clang proceeds to slow to a crawl, use
use up all available memory & swap on the system, and fail because it can't
allocate any more memory.

i tried unloading unnecessary kernel modules, killing unnecessary processes
and adding more swap, but all it did was thrash more and take two days longer
to run out of memory.
