The question usually is macrodef vs antcall and macros should consume
less memeory, not more.

In your situation I'd rather look for a memory leak in the things you
do.  Do you run any <java>, <javac> or <junit> tasks?  Sun's javac is
known to leak memory in certain JDKs, for example.

How do you do that?

If you have any chance to fork the process into a separate Java VM, a
memory leak at least wouldn't affect your main build.
