Making that change worked for me.  I built both Subversion and Tshark,
my two problem children.  The build time was not too much different
than without the flag.  Only 1 CPU was active with cc1 at a time.
I had no 'pfault' states on any entries in top for both builds.

I guess that we can close out this issue.

Thank you and the list for the suggestion.
