I have added more RAM from 256MB to 512MB remaining swap at 512 MB.
Build is successful!!!
Newer version of any OS trends to use more memory nowadays.
IMHO, without GUI, 256MB RAM+512MB swap should have been enough for doing this.
One question remains. Error message does not indicate insufficient memory.
How do you know that?

Sorry, I'm now on tcsh.
