Dave mentioned he might look at why it crashes when using boehmgc. But
as we all know he's a busy person ;-) If any one else is brave enough,
they can try it out with the svn bjam version (3.1.15), just by adding
--gc when building bjam.

NOTE; Using boehmgc does help, when I run with it, it does use less
memory. It just crashes at some point :-(
