I suspect that the amount of increase needed was far below what Basil threw out. I went with 512 and even at the time was thinking that it was probably excessive. Like I said, I suspect that 256 MB would probably ample and maybe even excessive but since I didn't try it at that level I can't confirm that it would work. The practical impact of changing to 1000 as I understand it you are allocating about a 1 GB of storage on the SD card to swap space which I believe would rarely ever be required. On the other hand, what do I know.
Basil also said to increase the swapfile size. It was set at 100
his advise was to set it to 1000. I did that and the build for
fldigi-4.1.01 worked fine no errors this time in the compile. So
now I have fldigi-4.1.01 working and will add FLMSG and the stable
release of FLAMP.
Thanks for the help.

I just did a build on the latest stretch raspbian
of the a current version of fldigi. It was necessary to
increase the swap space on the current system to get a
successful build. The default swap appears to be 100, I assume
MB, I bumped it to 512 which was probably excessive, 256 might
have been way more reasonable but that is just a guess on my
DRAWS beta 9 image comes with FLDIGI-4.0.18 installed. There
are much newer FLDIGI release available so I tried to compile
and install FLDIGI-4.1.02.29 and that failed. I downloaded the
FLDIGI-4.1.02.29.tar.gz to /usr/local/src directory where I
also found the original fldigi-4.0.18.tar.gz The ./configure
runs fine and doesn't show any errors. The "make" command
produces an error at the end of its compile. I was successful
in compiling and installing flamp-2.22.05.12 using the
procedure I followed for fldigi.
I did un comment sources file in /etc/apt/sources.list and up
dated the apt package cache with sudo "aptitude update". I
also updated "aptitude install build-essentials" and
"aptitude build-dep fldigi"
Has anyone had success with beta 9 and the new fldigi
Following the described procedure above on a plain Raspbian
Stretch current release on a different PI 3B+ I was able to
compile and install FLDIGI-4.1.02.29 without issue.
I am looking for some guidance on how to get the more recent
versions of fldigi installed and operating on DRAWS,
