That looks like it was a huge link. Taking more than an hour is normal,
especially if it's having to use swap.

Before you killed it, did you check CPU usage (e.g. with "top")? It
should have been pegging one core at 100%.

More patience. And/or more RAM, if you can.

Also, you could try exporting LDGOLD=yes in the environment. This might
speed up the linking drastically... or possibly cause it to fail, as it
requires more memory than the regular linker. Worth trying, anyway.
