Not necessarily.  Where does TMPDIR point on that system?  (If you
don't set it explicitly in the environment, the startup code sets it
to the `tmp' subdirectory of your main DJGPP installation directory.)
If it points to another drive, you should look at that other drive's
free space for a possible explanation.

You are looking in the wrong direction: if ld were running out of
virtual memory, it would have said something like "Memory exhausted".
"Disk full" is a different kind of trouble (assuming the error message
indeed tells the real reason for the failure).
