384 MB.

by which I mean Jhc stayed above 5% cpu the whole time. (Jhc's VIRT stayed
around 495MB).

also my limited patience has prevented me from seeing the whole-program
optimization phase ...

Jhc is unusably (read: untestably if/when I break something) slow on my
obsolete computer.  My first hacking target will be some kind of
-fsymbol-at-a-time use less ram option :)
