Building Qt 4.8.4 commercial with Webkit runs out of memory or crashes on link

  • I am building Qt 4.8.4 with Webkit using Visual Studio 2005. My Windows 7 machine has 8GB of RAM. The build either runs out of memory linking Webkit or it outright crashes the linker. I don't have the error message because this time the linker just crashed. Help is greatly appreciated.

    The configure line used to configure the build is:

    configure -shared -commercial -platform win32-msvc2005 -debug-and-release -webkit -webkit-debug -phonon -phonon-backend -sse2 -mp -audio-backend -script -nomake demos -nomake examples

    The following generates either an out of memory error (seen 3 or 4 times) or a crash in the linker:
