make test fails (fatal error) on test 63377 and does not continue with remaining tests.

AIX 6.1, two different TL levels,
one with 2G RAM and 1.5G paging space
one with 9G RAM, 512 MByte paging space

I am aware that AIX has a different HW memory model (10 or 11 256M Byte memory segments, so it may lie in the 3072M limit used in the test. However, I do not really see the system grab that much memory before the test crashes. I will assume it is hard to spot using topas/nmon.

The test is also running a loop that is allocating? and writing? 1024 x 1024 x 100 'a' characters (or 22 x 102400k)

Some suggestions, read instructions, for:
1) setting up a situation that I can debug this test to see what is failing
2) instructions for the letting make test continue, even though this has failed.
3) instructions on how to skip this test for the time being.

Test script:
# ./configure ...
# make
# make test

Expected result:
that "make test" completes normally, asking to send test results, etc.

Actual result:
PASS ZE2 type hinting [tests/lang/type_hints_002.phpt] 
PASS ZE2 type hinting [tests/lang/type_hints_003.phpt] 
PASS Bug #46897: ob_flush() should fail to flush unerasable buffers [tests/output/bug46897.phpt] 
TEST 630/9330 [tests/output/bug63377.phpt]
Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 213647360) (tried to allocate 209715545 bytes) in /data/prj/php/php-5.3.20/run-tests.php on line 1818

Hi, I've fixed an issue in this test. (bug63377.phpt)

Please, apply the change manually and try again:;a=commitdiff;h=56d9edbbb93a2a338211b2e7c05cf52347a963ce

$ LDR_CNTRL="MAXDATA=0x8000000"
$ export LDR_CNTRL
$ make test

and system moves on, so not a bug - a linker flag needs to be added: -bmaxdata:0x80000000

This becomes an FYI for others.
