I have only successful builds now. I believe the fact that my smallest
machines have now 2 GB of RAM is strongly related.

Moving to the "not clear enough error message" category.

It would be really nice if I could know that lack of memory is the
reason for the failure from the build logs (not only by trying with a
bigger machine).

(Note: I can build 97.5% of all arch-independent packages with 1 GB of
RAM, so my previous setup is not really as limited as it might seem).
