 How often does this happen? Every time I try to compile mcs. 
 Additional Information: It is of particular interest that boehm-gc is "running out of 
 memory." Perhaps that's contributing the problem? I don't understand why it 
 does because I have 1 GB of RAM and 1 GB of swap.

+Okay, new info. It's the GC. 
+I did this: 
+1. Compile mono by: 
+	./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --with-gc=none 
+	make && make install 
+2. Compile mcs by:  
+        make -f makefile.gnu  
+	make -f makefile.gnu install prefix=/usr 
+3. Succeeds! 
+Note the argument --with-gc=none. 
+So without any gc it works fine, but what is broken with gc? 
+I've tried boehm-gc and the included libgc... I keep "running out of RAM."
