Unfortunatelly, this is a major problem with specific environment and type
of application... :-(

In this case, I consider it is much productively to concentrate on
optimization of  internal linker as well as compiler  for computers with
small phisical memory (<=128MB on Windows). Compiler, as well as internal
linker currently consume over 80MB each for simples Lazarus application.
