[Bf-committers] 8GB of RAM insufficient for bulding Blender

Hello everyone,

I am trying to build Blender (from its source on Git) so as to apply for
Google Suumer of Code 2020. However, when the build process (make) reaches
to 57%, the whole of my 8 GB RAM is consumed and my system starts thrashing
(eventually the build process gets killed). I am using Pop OS 19.10 64-bit
(which is based on Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine 64-bit), on an Intel Core i5
8th Gen processor, 8gb of RAM, and 4 GB of swap space on a 7200 rpm HDD.
Is there a workaround this or do I need to buy more RAM?
