[Debichem-devel] Bug#854555: mpqc3: New version needs 6GB of memory to build (?)

Package: src:mpqc3
Version: 0.0~git20170114-4

Dear maintainer:

Version 0.0~git20160216-7 of this package used to need 600 MB of RAM
to build, but now version 0.0~git20170114-4 seems to need around 6300 MB
of RAM to build.

This is of course not a bug by itself, but it may indicate some
kind of anomaly in the build system, so I just wanted to check that it's ok.

If this is normal and expected, feel free to close this bug.

[ Note: I measure the required memory by looking at Committed_AS in
  /proc/meminfo. Then I know how much memory a given package needs
  and that way I can build small packages using small machines
  and reserve the big machines for the big packages ]
