Ubuntu 10.4 freeze during compilation

I'm trying to compile a fortran code (not my own and I don't know fortran well) and have been having some trouble as the compilation starts and then fails as the computer completely freezes (as in press power button freeze). I added 1.5Gb swap memory as the computer only has 1GB and then tracked the memory use as the process happened and it seemed that the swap wasn't even used. The memory usage hit 90% of the 1.Gb and the machine froze again. The compiler is gfortran. Any suggestions or recommendations would be most appreciated.

As clarification, if I compile the code somewhere else, can I just bring over the .exe file?

I would think that it would work under Wine if it is an .exe file.

Good Luck
