Description John Ellson 2004-07-20 09:45:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Builds (of graphviz, but presumably of other packages too) with "make -j"
produce many "directory already exists" warnings.
The warnings come from libtool generated "mkdir .libs" statements.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
100% on dual processor machine

Steps to Reproduce:
1../configure; make
Actual results:
multiple "directory already exists" warnings

Expected results:
no such warnings

Additional info:
A fix that works for me is to use mkdir -p

The version of libtool embedded in graphviz-1.12 is 1.4.2, not 1.5.6.
Before I move this upstream, would it be possible to re-generate
graphviz using libtool 1.5.6 and check for the same behavior?

The problem still exists this morning using graphviz from CVS with

If you try it yourself, please disable the workaround for this problem 
by commenting out the line in graphviz/autogen.sh that patches

I have reported this to bug-libtool@gnu.org. Since it is just
cosmetic, I'm going to mark this UPSTREAM and wait for a fix in a
future version.
