You are basically out of luck for gcc; when MINIX 2 was mainstream
(10-15 years ago) the computers did have a lot less memory than now, and
furthermore from version 3 up GCC became very memory-hungry.
A workaround could be to have a look at Minix-VMD, it does use GCC.
Of course an even more sensible idea is to switch to MINIX3, but it
should be some reason for you to choose MINIX 2...
