It looks like you ran out of memory on your compile (see *** buffer overflow detected ***: terminated, in compile_em_real.log). Try increasing the available memory, or just delete the crimech mechanisms from the chem/KPP directory if you aren't using them. Also, just fyi, there is no need to compile KPP separately. As long as WRF_KPP=1 when you configure and compile, it will also be compiled.
