This might be related to the amount of RAM, but with connection to the 
number of parallel jobs.

When I tried to build qt5 with 4 jobs, 2GB RAM in VM was too little.
Increasing the amount to 4GB solved the problem.

Anyways, I don't recall getting GCC segfault, but rather a graceful 
message that I run out of memory.

If you get segfault, then maybe it's something worth reporting to Pat?
(Although running out of memory can surely be segfault cause).

You guys having 8/16/24 or more cores might possibly arrive at that problem.
So, try to lower the number of parallel jobs or increase the amount of 
RAM ;-)
