Jade is a known memory hog. (As many C++ projects ;-) TeX also likes it
quite well now-a-days.
Still sgmltools is among the smaller tools available. But you need 32MB
RAM and 48MB of swap to get it going reasonable well.

Having binaries files available will make things only smaller. Compiling
your own set makes you install about 50 to 100MB extra just to start.
(Rough estimate as I didn't count the bytes. But I updated the latest
sgmltools RPM packages.)
