I tried to compile sane with egcs 2.91.66 but I get a error message I
don't understand:

gcc -c -O2 -m486 -fno-strength-reduce -Wall -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I.
-I../include -I../include -D_GNU_SOURCE
-DPATH_SANE_DATA_DIR=/usr/local/share -DV_MAJOR=1 -DV_MINOR=0
-DBACKEND_NAME=canon -DLIBDIR=/usr/local/lib/sane -fPIC -DPIC canon.c
canon.c: In function `init_options':
canon.c:1631: virtual memory exhausted
make[1]: *** [canon.lo] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/packages/BUILD/sane-1.0.1/backend'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

When I got the error message I had about 70 MB free swap space left.

What's happening there and what can I do (I will not add more memory -
96 MB should be enough :) )?
