Perhaps that's related to the reported "make clean" infinite loop.

On my favourite git checkout I had that problem, too; it went like this:

  rm -f help.doc
  (cd tests; make clean)
  /bin/bash: Line 0: cd: tests: File or directory not found
  make[2543]: Entering directory `/.../build'
  for i in lsp cmp clos clx tk ext; do
    rm -f lib$i.a $i/?*.{o,eclh,data,c,sdat,h,fas};
  rm -f help.doc
  (cd tests; make clean)

That accumulated make processes until the machine started swapping; I got it
soon enough, so that a Ctrl-C was enough, but perhaps you've already been
too deep in OOM.
