In most cases, yes.

I'm not a compiler dev, but I believe that asking for more memory is more likely to fail - the PCH wants a contiguous block of virtual address space at a certain location. x86 doesn't have that much virtual address space to begin with (and the compiler is already playing a tricky game by asking for the PCH before any other DLLs are loaded).
