Created attachment 692196 [details, diff]
I submitted a PR upstream and attached the patch to fix the build with parallel make which will allow removing -j1 from the ebuild.
Upstream issue https://github.com/virtualsquare/vde-2/issues/6.
Thanks for the patch. Just so I understand the decision to move files around... Was there not a way to patch the existing makefiles to keep the existing file hierarchy?
I'm not an expert with autotools, but I do not think its possible. When make(1) reaches that makefile it will compile everything in parallel and the libvdemgmt.la file does not exist yet when it is needed.
