If there are no pre-built packages of gtk2hs for your system you can still build
from source in a reasonably straigtforward way. Basically we provide pre-built
versions of the problematic files that take so much memory to create in an
ordinary build. The remainer of the build does not require very much memory.

See this FAQ:

If there are no versions of these pre-built files that are appropriate for your
platform please ask on the gtk2hs mailing list and we'll see what we can do.
