You needed more swap, I think. Several folks have suggested 256MB as a
minimum when compiling things like glibc, gcc, ... The fact that adding
ram cured it seems to indicate that. I have successfully installed on a
32MB RAM configuration. It was hard work (many sig 11 type things) but
completed by letting make restart after each failure.
