I just added the following to the top of my own FPC/Lazarus install

# Check swap space since building Lazarus uses lots of resources and
swap. Need 1 GB swap.
SWAPSPACE=$(free | grep Swap | grep  -P -o "[0-9]+" | head -1)
if [ "$SWAPSPACE" -lt 1000000 ]; then
  echo "Swap space $SWAPSPACE too small! You must set 1 GB swap!"
  exit 1
echo "Swap space $SWAPSPACE OK!"
