The build process for GDL requires too much memory. I
know that I have a very old system, but I could not
complete the build within 24 hours.

Fedora core 4
Thinkpad T20 laptop
P3 400Mhz
128Mb of RAM
1Gb swap

I used to run Gentoo and I had no problems building any
other packages (aside from OO and Mozilla).

    GDL makes intensive use of templates and
    instantiation requests. The latter requires on
    some platforms that all template defintions are in the
    same compilation unit.
    I assume that 128MB might be the limting fator here.
    On a 1Gb P3 1Ghz system the build takes less than
    30min.
    You could try to build GDL without X11 running.
    HTH,
