The compiler in use would be the relevant information.  If it's f2c or
g77 -- and probably even if it isn't -- that message comes from the
runtime library routine which implements string concatenation (`//'),
asked to allocate a silly amount of memory.

I'd guess this is due to a programming bug, possibly using an
uninitialized string variable, inconsistent subprogram arguments, or a
consequence of something getting overwritten after array bounds
violation or similar.  It would need debugging with gdb.
