Please don't top post.  This seems to be a new topic, so just deleting 
everything after your message is reasonable.

We do not use the gold linker although we do build it.

You really shouldn't need --disable-werror for glibc-2.25.  I've built it 
with gcc-7.1 and it builds fine without it.  It's possible you may need it 
if you are using an older version of gcc.

My experience in building on a ram disk is that it gives about an 8% 
speedup.  The build process is CPU bound, not disk bound.
