It depends. If the system is sufficiently resource constrained that
malloc() is actually telling you that you're not going to the moon, more
RAM will help. But what's more likely is that it's running out of
process address space - a 32 bit process can only address 3GB of address
space (which isn't necessarily all RAM), no matter how much RAM is
available. Adding more RAM isn't going to help there. Getting rid of
32-bit build systems is.
 On x86, anyway. I don't know what the ARM VM split is.
3G/1G on my ARM 32 bit test system, same as x86.
