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
