Thanks, I've managed to branch it now.

I know, currently it is unbuildable on 64bit, even with the RAM
constraints it always runs out of memory during linking.  It's a
large C++ codebase and GNU ld is a pig, so over the weekend I
intended to tinker with gold to see if that helps to reduce
memory consumption but then OBS got in my way..
