Thanks, Jim.  I did get GNURadio to build, by putting 4GB of swap on the 
eMMC.  Although swap on iscsi sounds cool, and is definitely creative!

C7 with 4GB of swap feels much more responsive, even when not heavily 
loaded, for some reason.  I'm just needing to get some of the GUI pieces 
of EPEL built (wxPython and its deps, for one) before I can go to 
production with these little devices (targeted to be RFI sniffers for a 
radio astronomy observatory using the cheap RTL-SDR dongles made by 
outfits like Nooelec).
