Your questions  led directly to the problem. Apparently the swap partion that 
was in use was not valid.
Summary of the problem and solution follows: 
1. cat/proc/swaps  indicated an empty file.
2.Edited /fetc/fstab to change the swap partition to a disk that was known to 
have a valid swap partition and rebooted. 
3.cat/proc/swaps displayed:
     Filename                        Type            Size    Used    Priority
     /dev/hdb3                     partition       1025632 588     1
4. ' make install' ( gtk+-2.8.20) was executed sucessfully

Thank you for you expedient  and professional response.
