[pypy-dev] why PyPy build takes so much resources?

Required 4 GB for 64bit machine and lots of time for build to be elapsed 
each day is very inconvenient. Well, I can download and install compiled 
version, but then I have to set all paths to the files I'm working with.
Maybe somewhere there are lots of C files with -O3 or like that? Can you 
provide a build option e.g. --without-optimization to remove those -O3, 
-O2 or somehow else reduce build time and memory consumption (well I see 
the opts

PYPY_GC_MAX_DELTA=200MB pypy --jit loop_longevity=300 ./translate.py -Ojit
from http://pypy.org/download.html#building-from-source

but they essentially increase build time).
