I'm having trouble emerging Gnome on Gentoo system. It gets to the
module to load evolution- It gives two warning at the beginning:
1. you should update 'aclocal.m4' by running aclocal(I did, it still says it each time)

2. configure.in:63: warning: AC_ARG_PROGRAM invoked multiple times
repeats that 3 times...

then it begins the build and moves along until it screams: Out of memory!

and shuts down the process stating waiting for jobs to finish.

I only have 128M, is there a way to lighten the load for the build?

Did you post this question on the Gentoo forums? I am not using Gentoo, so will be of little help.

But, note that the real memory requiement is more than 128 mb of RAM fore a graphical interface. See this reference.

If this is a laptop system, then some of your RAM may be "borrowed" by the video card.

How much swap space is on this installation?
