The linking step needs 4GB of RAM, which means it takes 40 minutes of swap-thrashing just to link if you're on a 4GB RAM system that can't dedicate 100% to ld alone (the OS and disk cache need memory too!). I ended up renting an 8GB VPS for a few hours to compile a personally-patched Chromium.

But 4GB is not too much in this day and age. My computer is outdated.
