No, all the VMs are identically-configured.

There are various linker options which can help reduce memory taken
while linking, e.g. -Wl,--no-keep-memory, -Wl,--reduce-memory-overheads,
or -Wl,--hash-size=NUMBER. I can't quite tell what you're doing right
now because your build hides the exact command lines in use (please
reconsider that), but have you looked into those?
