usually each kernel thread needs 1.5 GB RAM, that means in case 
of 4 threads i need 6GB only for compiling, still there are the OS, etc.
so you need at least 8GB of RAM in any machine that want to compile blender with cycles!

that is not the case if you are building for the masses

can i hard code it in SConscript ?
