Trouble building rosetta3.4 on Mac OsX 10.5.8

I have unpacked all of the files but each time that I enter scons bin mode=release I keep getting this read out:

I have only a very basic knowledge of programming and don't know enough to troubleshoot this on my own so I was wondering if anyone else had any ideas about what I could try doing to fix this error.

It's telling you that it can't compile because it doesn't have any memory. "cc1plus: out of memory allocating 4072 bytes after a total of 0 bytes" implies to me that it is getting literally no memory from the OS, which suggests GCC is mis-installed or has insufficient permissions or something. I've sent this along to some mac people I know to see if they've had it before.

I haven't ever seen that error message before, but it's definitely a problem with either your installation of gcc or with your version. I believe there were problems with gcc-4.0, so I'd recommend upgrading to at least 4.1 (which I believe is available through macports). 10.5 is now two OS revisions behind, so you might also consider upgrading to Lion.

I have gcc-4.2 installed as part of Xcode so I don't know why it is still trying to use gcc-4.0. How can I remove gcc-4.0 and direct the program to use gcc-4.2 to build these files instead?
