Description orbea 2021-03-18 00:10:19 UTC
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
Comment 2 Adam Feldman gentoo-dev 2021-03-18 15:24:10 UTC
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?
Comment 3 orbea 2021-03-18 16:08:34 UTC
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 file does not exist yet when it is needed.
