I have no idea - it's not a problem I've seen before. One thing you can try is 
to run configure.py with the -i switch:

   python configure.py - i && make

It will take much longer to compile - the default is to concatenate all 
the .cpp files together, which speeds up compiling by about 80%, but requires 
a lot of memory. The -i switch creates and individual .cpp file for each sip 
file - the compile will take longer, but you should be compiling a new .cpp 
file every 30 to 60 seconds.
