Looking at the logs, we can see that TeX's batteries were discharged :)

<snipped>
! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [main memory size=1000000].
..

Here is how much of TeX's memory you used:
 117 strings out of 83585
 2056 string characters out of 1063418
 1000001 words of memory out of 1000000
 14031 multiletter control sequences out of 10000+50000
 11421 words of font info for 38 fonts, out of 500000 for 2000
 580 hyphenation exceptions out of 8191
..
</snipped>


Follow the guide: doc/sgml/README-PDF, i.e. increase the limites in your
texmf.cnf, or just install a thing which uses TeX, for example LyX. It
seems, that default limits in texmf.cnf are suitable for old PC.

Between, you can try to build a less paging document, for example
RedBoot User's Guide (current version has about 187 pages).

cd /tmp && make -C <...>/ecos/packages/redboot/current/doc clean pdfa4
