Setting 512MB versus 2GB slows the build down by at least a few
On our vm cluster which uses virtual box with 512MB and a 1GHz cpu
an initial build of omap3-console-image takes around 22 hours.
Where as on my build box 3GHz E8500 with 4GB it takes 3 - 4 hours

60GB probably won't be enough for desktop/graphical images, more
