I recently acquired a new PC with a dual core chip running Kubuntu 
Feisty Fawn. So when I last tried to build Gimp, version 2.3.18, I used 
"make -j" and the build terminated with an error in just a few seconds.  
If I just use the command "make",  the build completes successfully in 
about 10 minutes. 

Reading up on parallel make, I conclude that the Gimp makefile is not up 
to snuff for doing a parallel make.  Naively perhaps, I think that is a 
shame because I bet a lot of people would save a lot of time if they 
could do parallel makes.  Has anyone looked at doing parallel builds of
