It definitely does. It does it both between individual c files in a
project, and between projects (taking care about dependencies).

And yes, I've seen that cause it to build modules, particularly smaller
ones, in different order at different invocations based on small
differences in timing. And yes, it aborts on first failure.

So it would surprise me if that is *not* the problem...
