--- Comment #6 from Rodney W. Grimes <rgrimes at FreeBSD.org> ---
I would suggest that make with -j3 on a 1024MB machine is not a reasonable
expectation.   It is very easy for a compile or linker process to get into the
500MB size region and suggest you either increase avaliable memory to the VM,
or decrease the job count.

Due to the fact that "runnable" processes are not swapped in FreeBSD, this
leads to an OOM condition, and the kill you see.
