How about a note about parallel builds in the installation manual.
"If you intend to do a parallel build and you are concerned about some
(very unlikely) race conditions in 'configure', we suggest that you do
make -j1 configure-build
make -j6000 all-build
make -j1 configure-host
make -j6000 all-host
make -j1 configure-target
make -j6000 all-target"
Or something like that. And fix up the Makefile so that one can
actually do that (which is not much work at all).
Personally, I think that should suffice. :-/
Other people agree?
