>From what I could see from reading the code, the number of jobs should automatically default to the number of available CPUs in any case, so should automatically be 1 at least on the porter box. However, assuming that adding the following to debian/rules would implement your suggestion, then sadly no it does not appear to be enough: waf-configure-options += $(if $(filter hppa,$(DEB_HOST_ARCH)),-j1) Even with this change, the "./waf configure" call hangs after outputting Checking for dbus-1 >= 1.0.0 : ok Checking for dbus-1 flags : ok Checking for header expat.h : ok I killed it after 15 minutes of inactivity; the build output shows that -j1 was passed to the configure call. If I add the Runner.py patch instead, it gets past that point with ease (and later fails with the second error I mentioned, which is trivially fixable by adding "&& !defined(__hppa__)" to an existing patch).
