How much memory should it take to build Firefox?

I have 2GB of core and 2GB swap. You would think that would be enough to build anything, and I had no real problems with Firefox-21. Yesterday I tried to upgrade to Firefox-22. The final ld stage took all of my core and the kernel then killed off the process.

:063 1865 473874 0 ld

What do I have to do to build this package?
