	After the package is created, the temporary build directory takes 1.1Gb.
It's not that big, but it is also true that the build takes up a lot of
resources during compilation.
	My computer only has 8Gb of RAM. Maybe using multiple jobs may be a
problem, I use -j2, and my computer is on its knees (or chips, or circuits,
don't know... ^^) when building, but it builds fine.
