[cfe-dev] Building clang

I wanted to play with clang, and was trying to build it according to
instructions (https://clang.llvm.org/get_started.html), with GCC 5.5 and
GNU ld 2.26.1, running my linux 5.6.7.

However, the build regularly fails, running out of memory (my laptop has
12Gb RAM). I tried with both "Unix Makefiles" and "Ninja 1.7.1". I did
specify explicitly "DLLVM_ENABLE_PROJECTS=clang".

Is it expected to consume that much memory during build?
