As far the disk space and memory are concerned I do have about 768MB of RAM with 1GB swap with several GBs of free disk space. I have compiled LFS/BLFS a few times before this and I never had any problems then. As I'm using JHALFS, it includes gcc and a few other packages from custom optimizations. So it has nothing to do with the custom optimizations at least not directly.
 I'm always dubious about adding -O3 when a package defaults to -O2.
I know that Greg used to use it for glibc in DIY, so it's probably ok
in that, but for gcc I would immediately suspect it if you get

 Dunno if jhalfs supports changing the flags for individual
packages, I don't use it.
