Looking more closely at what is happening, I notice that when I do a

"make -j 3"

the make stops with the following error message:

make[2]: *** No rule to make target 
`../libgimpthumb/libgimpthumb-2.0.la', needed by `gimp-thumbnail-list'. 

If I then do a "make", followed by a Control-c in say 5 seconds, 
followed by a "make -j 3" the build will complete successfully yielding 
a working program.

This seems to be repeatable.  The total build time is approximately 
halved and both cpu's are pegged most of the time.

Thanks for the suggestion to use "-j 3".
