#54 2.3.2 doesn't build in parallel


2.3.1 worked with "make install -j2", on OS X with a Core 2 duo, but 2.3.2 requires the build to be serialized, otherwise it fails with:

make install

    I did -j16 on 2.3.2 the other day, but it wasn't on the install target. It's possible it was just lucky timing for 2.3.1.
