Bug Description

webkit (and qt4-x11) ftbfs on armel and armhf. the final link step for the library takes 2 1/2, up to 2.6gb RAM. the build succeeds locally on a panda board, but fails on the buildds, even after increasing the timeouts to 5 x 1h.

needs investigation how this can be solved for quantal.

 - split the library into smaller pieces

 - evaluate why the buildd kill the build even with the increased timeouts

Adam's buildd sysctl tweak (vm.min_free_kbytes = 32768) allowed webkit, and a slew of other large builds, to build again.
