I'm a bit puzzled by this report.  I have been smoke-testing blead on FreeBSD approximately twice a week for the past month, typically with '-j8', and I have yet to see evidence of this problem.  Could you provide more evidence of what you're seeing?

Also, AFAICT there was nothing FreeBSD-specific in commit 3dfcef7e97bf1b516f.  Nor is there anything FreeBSD-specific in your patch.  3dfcef7e97bf1b516f was committed to blead on June 21.  Hence, if there were a problem with parallel builds I would have expected it to show up on multiple OSes, not just FreeBSD, and to have started to appear three months ago.  Can you clarify?

Thank you very much.
