Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11194
2.1.3 src.rpm rebuild fails with the -j flag.
Last modified: 2016-11-24 10:22:07 EST
I have MAKEFLAGS="-j 4" in my environment, to build stuff in parallel, with
the glibc src.rpm rebuild dies a horrible death -- the glibc makefile's
dependencies don't allow parallel builds. Try it:
rpm --rebuild glibc-2.1.3-15.src.rpm
Solution: add "unset MAKEFLAGS" in the spec file, just before make.

I build glibc with high -j numbers for ages. At least the current code
definitely works, even on 4+ processor machines.
