The ld manual page lists some options you can use to reduce its memory usage:
* --no-keep-memory (makes it re-read object symbol tables from time to time instead of keeping them in memory all the time)
* --reduce-memory-overheads (small hash tables and slower but less memory-intensive link map generation algorithm)
