Compilation Error when compiling Paraview 5.8.0

apologize if this issue was already addressed, but I fail to build Paraview 5.8.0 on Debian 9 with 8 GB of RAM and gcc version 6.3.0.
Paraview compilation triggers an error in gcc with the error message below.
I tried to build with a fewer number of make jobs (-j 2) but still, I get a compilation error.
Is this a known issue?

Compilation error reads:

g++: internal compiler error: Processus arrêté (program cc1plus)
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <file:///usr/share/doc/gcc-6/README.Bugs> for instructions.

make -j 1 should work, or you can use ninja as well.

thanks for the prompt feedback. I will report about the status. Just started a new compilation.

I confirm that make -j 1 does the job. Thanks
