Well, okay, it's the same difference.
It's caused by the same problem. If you stop making "install" depend
on "all install-only", but make it depend on "all" only, as Doug was
saying, then "make -j4 all install" stops misbehaving, because "install"
depends on "all", so "install" only proceeds after "all" is done.
