Usually that error message means that the account pgflquo is too low.

Increasing the account working set extent, and sysgen wsmax can improve 
the linking speed.

I do not know how much physical memory that you have, but it definitely
looks like your wsmax is very low, and that will limit the working set extent.

This will cause your page and swap file to be more heavily utilized, 
while physical memory goes unused.

Generally increasing WSMAX to the largest that you can with out getting 
a warning about it stopping pool expansion in the 
sys$system:agen$params.dat will allow you to improve overall system 

The WSEXTENT is set to the peak working set observed for each process.
