[Haskell-beginners] ghc process gets killed on a 512MB machine

I'm trying to install the highlighting-kate package[1] on a small Linode 
512MB instance. Throughout the installation process, top reports 
increasing memory usage of GHC, and ends up with the process being 
killed (ExitFailure 9, confirmed by the dmesg command).

I'm using GHC 7.0.3, and this problem didn't appear with GHC 6.12.3 and 
a previous version of highlighting-kate (don't know which for sure). I 
mean, I had it installed successfully at some point.

Is there any workaround for this problem? Other than fork the package 
repo and reduce the number of supported syntax files.
