Yes. This is probably dead on. The documentation will tell you the same

The only thing that I would suggest you might try, assuming that there
are some options on the command line or in make.conf, is to remove those
options (e.g., -j, etc.).  This is what I was getting at before.  If
your other builds are successful and all else fails, though, you have a
hardware issue on that machine.
