It strikes me as extremely unlikely that a crash or lock up will have
much to do with the software you are compiling. It's much more likely to
be a hardware fault - I'd check the memory, CPU temperature, run a
filesystem check and use the manufacturers' disk tools (or smartctl) to
test my disk(s).

When I've had issues like this in the past it has almost _always_ been
hardware, with the very occasional bad driver instead.

Try compiling something else big - the Linux kernel in a while loop for
example - and see if you can crash it with that.
