I still have been getting the occasional "fork: Resource temporarily
unavailable" error with make, but I haven't seen the "unable to remap
dll" error.  I have also been getting SIGABRT from throwing exceptions
across C++ DLLs, with GDB pointing to RtlUpdateClonedSRWLock() in ntdll,
but I was seeing that sometimes before this as well.  (This is with
1.7.9; recent snapshots haven't been working for me but I haven't had
the time to track down why.)

I'd say that it's not a panacea, but a significant improvement; it
certainly hasn't hurt, and with all the DLLs in Ports, we can use all
the address space we can get.
