Description Doug Chapman 2008-01-15 18:28:05 EST
Description of problem:
It appears that there are some dependency problems in the makefiles for
perl-Glib.  When I build on a really big ia64 system (i.e. more than 48 cpus) it
fails in various ways such as:

make: *** No rule to make target `blib/lib/Glib/ParseXSDoc.pm', needed by
`build/doc.pl'.  Stop.
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

if I remove the %{?_smp_mflags} (which gives a -j <numcpus> option to make) from
the make line it builds cleanly.

It is slightly (but not a lot since this is a small package) slower without this
but seems it might be simplest just to remove the smp_mflags from the make line
so it builds reliably.

Indeed. Committing the change to the devel spec file to drop smp_mflags now.

I'm not going to rebuild this immediately, as I'm in the process of
bootstrapping perl-5.10.0.
