Oh my, that hurts...quite an expensive piece of software, GHC ;) But
this really explains a lot, because two identical builds of mine
happened to die on different files - it never occurred to me GCC could
run low on memory though...
How about more swap, provided I would let it run overnight?

Ah, this sounds a bit more encouraging (really :) Wouldn't disabling
GCC optimisations be an easier way then?
