Yes, mico is very compile-intensive.  I believe this is due to
extensive use of C++ templates.  Add more RAM or swap and it
should go through okay.  I tried it with 32MB RAM & 30 MB swap,
and that still wasn't enough.  I added another 30 MB of swap, and
it sailed right through.

ORBit, when it finally comes out, will have a much smaller
footprint.  (c:  I imagine CORBA will become more common in GNOME
when it isn't so bulky.
