No, appallingly enough, I think that even this is marginal. I have a
very similar configuration (32M core, 100M swap), and find that the
only way I can successfully compile Mico is to shut down every X
application other than the xterm in which the build is taking place.
If you're running a couple netscapes, gimps, and emacsen while
attempting this compilation, I'd expect you to run out of memory.
