I tried giving it 8G ram and an extra cpu (though I didn't use -j2).
The 'disk' was probably faster too, as it had already been expanded
enough during the last build. Worked a lot better see below - only one
unexpected failure, and just for the reference, it looks like this

"\\(call [^\\ncc_on_device" 0
