OOM did it again, this time I ran glib 1.2.10 configure script and while it
checked whether I have working -static, OOM again killed my top
(looks like it really likes my top :-). You can see newly started ld
which are about to trigger OOM within 5 secs in last screen of poor top.

Maybe I misunderstand something, but why OOM chose top? Is it how it is
intended to work?

PS. I thought 128 Megs of RAM is enough for X+KDE+gcc...
Do we all have to play Gig'o'Rama these days?
