Update: I've removed everything from /usr/local (so it's empty) and
tried again, and this time it passed (without eating memory).

There were some unusual libraries in /usr/local/lib/compat, like (sorry, don't have the whole list) which I noticed because
they were marked schg and I had to clear the flag before deleting them.
I think this might have influenced the compiler because I had the same
situation before - old compat libraries in /usr/local/lib/compat getting
pulled in for a newly built port (which I believe is a serious error but
haven't explored further).
