> export MAKEFLAGS="-j 2"
That does indeed generate errors related to "obj.last" when building global libraries. It works fine when building granular libraries.
I have "export MAKEFLAGS='-j 4'" in my .bash_profile, so it is always set to the 4 CPUs on this machine. I prefer global libraries, and don't want to slow it down, so I do this:
Configure -build (runs make internally) ... answer all the questions and let it do the build cd source make -j 1
Remarkably, the first make (run by Configure) does not stop from the failures related to obj.last and uses 4 CPUs to compile everything; the global libraries are incomplete due to those failures. The second make finds everything already compiled, so it just needs to complete the global libraries; it runs quickly and all is well.
BTW I do this on Linux, on Windows/Cygwin (using VC++), and on Mac OS X.
