There's a few possible solutions:

* Enable WITH_CYCLES_NATIVE_ONLY and disable
* If it's running out of memory building a particular module, you can
disable that module in CMake (e.g. WITH_MOD_FLUID, ...). It would be
interesting to know which one.
* As a last resort, you can build with fewer threads.
