did anybody succeed to make SBCL run on Virtuozzo?

I'm stuck with

 neuss@vs149151:~$ sbcl
 mmap: Cannot allocate memory
 ensure_space: failed to validate 536870912 bytes at 0x09000000
 (hint: Try "ulimit -a"; maybe you should increase memory limits.)

I get that error on my hosteurope VPS (I *think* that uses virtuozzo but am not certain).
My woraround is to start sbcl with  --dynamic-space-size 200   (depending on the amount of memory you are allowed to use, you may have to decrease that number or may be able to increase it -- IIRC I used to run happily with 100 until I had to load cxml which made sbcl run out of memory in that configuration).
