do you really need to compile ntpd
i was using the one o the stretch packaging and it was working with PPS out of the box. (the package of Jessie and Wheezy i had to compile by myself to get PPS working)
but because of the high requirements of ntpd to get ntp working without internetconnection i switched to chrony
as ntp server/client.
see here my tiny project RPi-GPS-PPS-StratumOne
if you really want to stick to ntpd, then take a look to the commit, where i dropped ntpd support in my script...
got rid of ntpd part - completely switched to chronyd instead of ntpd as option
(everything, that is marked redish is the ntpd part)
BTW: ntp-4.2.8p11.tar.gz is currently the most recent version.

My first guess is that the Pi ran out of memory. Which Pi model are your using.
- Dont boot into Desktop, run the compile via console or SSH/putty.
- change your CPU/GPU memory split.
i don't think you run out of memory. i compiled the ntp-4.2.8p8.tar.gz (or 4.2.8pp9) in the past on a RPi1B rev.1 that has only 256MB ram in total. then it should work on a RPi3 without problems, even you setted the memory split to max RAM for the gpu.
but yes, i didn't run it on the desktop, i only installed Raspbian-Stretch-lite (console only)...
and only with make
, not make -j4
(only one job at the time not 4)
