The log doesn't say much but running out of some kind of disk space
could explain that error.  I don't know how much rame a EC2 small
instance has, nor how much swap it has.  I do know that mongodb is not
failing the automatic builds:

It's not failing on DragonFly either.  So I think this is a case of
"it's just you".  It might be worth trying on a bigger EC2 instance or
maybe just use a binary package?
