Eventually, for now cli tools is OK but a repro is needed. Found this:
Two weeks old, but contains some lib*-dev* packages :-)

16M ram + 32M swap used to be enough... but I don't know if modern gcc
can cope with 128M ram... hope so.

Compiling on the sd-card that's easily replaced should solve this.
But other fast changing data (tmp-files, cash-files, db-index, log-files
etc) is probably a worse problem. Maybe move /tmp /var and /home to the
sd-card.... wonder if the kernel support bind-mount so the sd-card need
not be partitioned.
An maybe a OpenMoko policy that all software should store files that
change in a flux in one of those locations.
-- such seems risky and would require a lot of patience.
Patience is no problem... started programming in the early 80:s :-)

Worse for messaging... programming rarely need allot of
