Whatever value is the default was working well until

The build crashes at completely different places for
different people (please see the earlier thread).

It still crashes for me with today's CVS, this time
during the "lucene-block" target.

Your sledgehammer approach of "give it more heap-space"

CVS is still busted. How will we ever find the real cause?
It was introduced recently to CVS.
