I think it's ok, the new version switches on the MPQC_NEW_FEATURES code
which utilizes the TiledArray and MADNESS frameworks.

I did notice that it's much heavier during compilation (and actually
outsourced test builds to the Debian porter boxes, my personal notebook
wasn't happy about them).

If you could say which files require that much memory to compile and/or
link, I am happy to file an upstream issue requesting them to maybe
split it up or rewrite it.
