This is a bug report for perl from sergey.aleynikov@gmail.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.41 running under perl 5.27.9.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]

High-parallel builds of perl are currently stranded by the
lib/unicore/mktables step. It takes ~60% of the total build time:

git clean -dfx && ./Configure -de -Dusedevel && time make -j20 test_prep
make -j20 test_prep  162.93s user 9.08s system 670% cpu 25.648 total

./miniperl -Ilib lib/unicore/mktables -C lib/unicore -P pod -maketest
-p -w  15.82s user 0.23s system 99% cpu 16.057 total

If I include configure step in the total time measurement, it's still ~27%

bash -c './Configure -de -Dusedevel && make -j20 test_prep'  185.76s
user 14.36s system 340% cpu 58.733 total

This happened only during this development cycle, this step has been
taking around 12-16 seconds on 5.20-5.26 with ~second growth each
release. Can this be addressed in some way? This makes bisecting
through 5.27.x and, later, all future perls, much slower.
