Building the psim simulator in gdb takes a large amount of memory.
you need to add more memory or swap space. What does your memory usage
during the compile ("cat /proc/meminfo")? Building on a machine with
24MB RAM slowed to less than a crawl during the psim phase. I gave up
rebuilt it on a machine with 40 MB of real memory and 64M of swap.
