PPA builds and Ubuntu builds use 100% identical virtual machines.

Anyway, it's not that the virtual *machine* is out of memory; it's that
any single 32-bit process can only address a certain amount of that
memory. As far as I'm aware, there's no option but to continue trying
to persuade the linker to take less memory.
