Thanks for the info, sounds like a bug that is hard to identify and fix.

Unfortunately it failed again (on atlantis):

| dpkg-deb: building package 'gnustep-base-runtime-dbgsym' in 
| dpkg-deb: error: <compress> from tar -cf subprocess was killed by signal 
| dh_builddeb: dpkg-deb --build 
debian/.debhelper/libgnustep-base1.25/dbgsym-root .. returned exit code 2
| dpkg-deb: building package 'libgnustep-base1.25' in 
| dh_builddeb: Aborting due to earlier error

I'm quite surprised that gnustep-base is hit by this OOM issue, it's a
dwarf package compared to many other beasts like libreoffice, webkit,
gcc, etc.  Could it be a powerpcspe-specific problem introduced in
recent binutils?
