The sad truth is that 4G isn't enough to build some ports any more. Even
using 8G I have a list of ports that I build one at a time to prevent
them building at the same time and consuming everything, such as llvm*,
gcc*, *webkit*, firefox, chromium

In poudriere.conf you can set PARALLEL_JOBS=1 and ALLOW_MAKE_JOBS=no so
that only one build task is run at a time, this might allow a single
process to get enough ram to finish.

There is an ALLOW_MAKE_JOBS_PACKAGES option but I think it should be the
other way, letting us say only build these ports one at a time.
