dpkg memory requirements ?

How much memory does dpkg require to install a package ?

I tried to work it out for myself using dmalloc but ran into problems. I
compiled dpkg against dmalloc and set the environment variable (to check
almost everything), but when i ran dpkg its memory usage spiraled upwards
(above 200MB) until the process was terminated.

Has anyone succesfully used dpkg with dmalloc, if so what dmalloc options
did you use ?
