[NTLK] Out of Heap space creating book in NTK?

I'm creating a rather large book in NTK and I keep running out of heap space
towards the end of the compile. I've already set the heaps at 16383, so I'm
maxed out there. Now, what exactly is it? I mean, is the defined heap space
temporary heap that Apple is using just for the compile? Or is this defining
a maximum heap on the Newton -- and the compile quits because it discovers
that the Book would exceed the Newton's heap?

In other words -- does this not compile because NTK (for Windows, at least)
just sucks? Or is it trying to prevent me from building a Book that would not
work properly on the Newton due to heap usage on the Newton itself?

Anyone have hints for saving heap in NTK (I used Bookmaker to create the .f
file -- so there likely isn't much manual manipulation I can do to it)?

Or -- someone with the NTK for MAC mind if I send you a 5MB .f file and see if
NTK for Mac can handle packaging it into a Book?
