I wanted to follow up with this and let you know that I was able to
get rt-serializer to finally complete by moving the installation to a
machine with considerably more RAM (12GB instead of 2GB).  The
serializer process maxed out at about 6.3GB of RAM while serializing
an 8GB database.  This is using RT 4.2.2 on FreeBSD 9.2 with Perl

The serializer reported the following statistics when it finished:

Total object counts:
 1002902 RT::Transaction
  665796 RT::Attachment
  257818 RT::Group
  182643 RT::GroupMember
   62315 RT::Ticket
    9027 RT::Attribute
    8382 RT::User
    4324 RT::Link
     988 RT::ObjectCustomFieldValue
     312 RT::CustomFieldValue
      38 RT::Queue
      30 RT::ObjectCustomField
      30 RT::CustomField

I'm going to try running the importer next, but I suspect that uses a
lot less RAM.
