gcc seems to use alot more RAM with some optimizations turned on. With heaps 
of optimizations turned on here (-O3, -fomit-frame-pointer, -march=pentiumpro 
etc.) the process takes well over 300 megs and needs to be killed.

Turn some of those off and it only goes to about 160 megs and compiles fine.
