Hi Tobias and Dirk,

the build fails because the "-j4" argument asks to build in parallel with up to
4 threads, but debian/rules currently does not support parallel build.

One reason for this is that it attempts to make some targets too early, before
the configure script has finished to execute.

The following patch solves this part of the problem:

This makes sure that make-arch-stamp and make-indep-stamp are only run after
the file configure-stamp has been created by the configure target.

Unfortunately, there must be a less obvious issue remaining, because
the build still fails, although at a later stage.

PS: because of the uncertainties with cut-and-paste of tab whitespace, I am not
sure if the patch would actually apply, but at least it tells what to change 

Have a nice day,
