Public bug reported:

Porting a particular build of v8 from ubuntu 17.10 to ubuntu 18.04 circa beta 2,
its make failed at -j2, but succeeded at -j1.
The error message was odd:

make[3]: Entering directory '/home/buildbot/src/oblong-v8/out/v8/out'
testing/ warning: overriding recipe for target 
testing/ warning: ignoring old recipe for target 
make[3]: Leaving directory '/home/buildbot/src/oblong-v8/out/v8/out'
make[3]: *** read jobs pipe: Success.  Stop.

debuild: fatal error at line 1152:

This is on a machine with 32GB of RAM.

The problem reproduces quickly and reliably.  Happy to try other
versions of make and/or provide more data.
