I'll upgrade then, thanks.

Anyway, from the comment in Makefile.in, I would
have thought you tried to work around Make versions
that don't honour '.NOTPARALLEL' pseudo targets:

        # The "if [ -f $@ ]; then true; " part
        prevents parallel Make's
        # which don't honor .NOTPARALLEL, such as
        SGI's Make, from running
        # this rule many times, one each for every
        file it creates.

It might be interesting to know that those attempts
still leave you with the locking problem.
Maybe those attempts are no use because it fails
