[meta-freescale] IMX6 - webkit memory exhausted

I'm trying to create the minimal image possible with just x11, a webkit browser and dhcp for an imx6 sabre lite board.
The meta-web-kiosk  (https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Web_Application_for_Interactive_Kiosk_Devices ) layer seems a good starting point so I copied and added it to my bblayers.conf
If I try
bitbake core-image-web-kiosk
It keeps failing  (probably due to "memory exhausted" )while building webkit-gtk-1.8.3-

collect2: error: ld terminated with signal 9 [Killed]

I have the same issue also if I try to simply  bitbake midori.

I'm running this build on an Virtual Machine (8 cores, 3 gigabytes of RAM)  -  Yocto 1.4 Dylan using the fsl community bsp
Is adding more RAM the only solution?
