There's a (mostly quiet) mailing list for getting Jade to work on Unix,
mostly inspired by the autoconf work I've done (it all used to work
before that :-)). You can subscribe by sending a mail with 
"subscribe jade-unix" in the body to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Usually this really means that your virtual memory is exhausted :-). You
haven't mentioned the amounts of real and swap memory in your box, but
as Jade is a heavy C++ application and GCC is known to eat lots of memory
when optimizing those, it may well be that you simply need to switch on
more swapspace during compilation (under Linux, you can add and remove
swapfiles on-the-fly - dunnow how your version of *nix handles this).

The 'make' invocation, btw, is the correct way to get Jade to build. Oh,
and if you do have success - please drop me a mail; I want to make
a list of success/failure platforms.
