You have overlooked the message that tell you to source Env.Host.sh
see in the output you quoted the line that says:
> source ./Env.Host.sh

You are most likely using an unpatched gnu make 3.81 with -j > 1
there should have been a warning at configure time about that. something like
"* - make 3.81 is prone to crashes with parallelism > 1. Since
--with-num-cpus was explicitely given, it is honored, but do not
complain when make segfault on you."

Anyway, you either need to disable (i.e do not specify
--with-num-cpus) the build parallelism or install and use a gnu make
3.82 or a patched 3.81 version.
You can find a usable 3.82 version at
