[all] opkg killed by navit install

i've been trying to install the latest navit (2398) from the navit
repository, and am having the usual problems with opkg not being able
to handle it. i've created a 128mb swap file, and turned off the x
server, but no dice.

any ideas, guys? why does this require so much ram, is this a
fundamental flaw in opkg? i assume any package of a large size (navit
is 5mb, hardly gigantic) will cause these problems.

in the meantime, could navit be broken down into sub-packages, i
assume it's not one file taking the entire 5MB? navit-gui and
navit-data, for example?
