Take a look at config.log to see why it is failing. In some versions of
ubuntu/debian, you need to pass the following option to configure:

You need slightly more than 4GB to compile graph-tool, unfortunately. If
you have around 6GB with swap, make sure there is nothing else consuming
much memory, and that the compilation is not being done in parallel
(i.e. do not use make -j2 or similar).
If you still cannot compile it, you can try using the clang compiler. It
is also available for ubuntu, and it should use only about half as much
