How about increasing all of the memory size constants in the source 
code?  Say, increasing the constants at the beginning of 

        /* Heap and Pointer Protection Stack Sizes. */
        /* These compiled in values are minima and it should be */
        /* possible to override them in a platform dependent way. */

#define SSIZE   10000L          /* pointer protection stack size */
#define NSIZE   200000L         /* number of cons cells */
#define VSIZE   2000000L        /* vector heap size in bytes */

by a factor of 10 or more, and recompiling?
