It always failed during compilation, it stuck at the point :


Code:
C       VBoxREM64 - {C}/src/recompiler/target-i386/translate.c


and my laptop's hard drive light keeps on, the system then became nonreponsive,

so I have to power off by press the power button and reboot it.

Anything wrong?

The virtualbox version : 4.1.22
Here is some my machine info :
Linux 3.2.12-gentoo #12 SMP i686 Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 480 @ 2.67GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

It runs out of resources.

Jaglover is right.
In order to compile Virtualbox (and 1 or 2 other packages),
I do a fresh reboot, disable GDM, and do not let the DE load up.
I then run the emerge from tty1.
I usually do this overnight.
By doing this, I am freeing up as much RAM as possible and therefore making it available to the compiler.
Virtualbox needs lots of RAM to build.
It's usually done by the morning.
