You can rule that out by setting RLIMIT_AS (e.g. "(ulimit -v 4194304; make)" for
a 4G limit). It's possible to exceed the limit when RSS is low, but not
exceeding the limit does confirm every kind of memory usage is low. It would
not surprise me if some -g2 -O3 compilations take 8G for a single file.
