Control: severity -1 important
The build fails because the machine used lacks memory. I have been
struggling with this issue since openjfx 8u121. On amd64 and i386 I
managed to build the package with 16GB of RAM (the binaries for the
other architectures are provided as a convenience as long as they build
and shouldn't block the transition to testing).
It looks like WebKit is compiled in debug mode and the memory required
at link time explodes. I haven't figured out how to disable this mode,
passing the --release option to the build-webkit script didn't improve
the situation. I tried adding -Wl,--no-keep-memory to the linker flags
but it didn't help either (I'm not sure I configured cmake properly though).
Any help would be highly appreciated.
