I have plenty of memory.

localedata/Makefile has

# Dependency for the locale files.  We actually make it depend only on
# one of the files.
$(addprefix $(objpfx),$(CTYPE_FILES)): %: \ $(common-objpfx)locale/localedef Makefile \
  $(addprefix charmaps/,$(CHARMAPS)) $(addprefix locales/,$(LOCALE_SRCS))
        @$(SHELL) $(common-objpfx) \
                  '$(built-program-cmd-before-env)' '$(run-program-env)' \
                  '$(built-program-cmd-after-env)' $@; \

$(addsuffix .out,$(addprefix $(objpfx),$(tests))): %: \
  $(addprefix $(objpfx),$(CTYPE_FILES))

$(objpfx)sort-test.out: $(objpfx)collate-test $(objpfx)xfrm-test \
                       $(test-input-data) $(addprefix $(objpfx),$(CTYPE_FILES))
        $(SHELL) $< $(common-objpfx) '$(test-program-prefix-before-env)' \
          '$(run-program-env)' '$(test-program-prefix-after-env)' \
          $(test-input) \
          > $@; \

However, there is no $(CTYPE_FILES) dependency for those tests
above, which fail at random under heavy load with parallel build.
