Try giving your machine some (more) swap; something killed the build, and
unless someone was being prolific with the kill command, the OOM killer
would be the best bet.  dmesg will also provide more supporting evidence of
that theory.

I'm not sure which upsets me more: that people are so unwilling to accept
responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager to regulate
everyone else's.
