We actually mention this already in the aRts installation:

     Note: Another configure option is --enable-final. This option can
	 speed up the build process, but requires a lot of memory. If you have 
	 less than 256MB of RAM, this option may cause swapping and
	 significantly slow compilation.

We should probably add this to the first proper KDE installation as
well though; I've copied this to blfs-dev.  Anybody have any objections?
