Do you have some data or experience on how portable it is wrt. the
compiler to list several source files in one compile command?  Can
some compiler create intermediate files in the current directory?
Because if yes, that would prevent parallel 'make install'.
Or it could leave behind object files?  Sorry, so far I wasn't able
to see easily in which directory this compilation command would be

I tried some compilers now.  All those I tried coped well with multiple
source files listed.  But just as well, none except GCC are intelligent
enough by themselves to not stomp upon each others' object files, and
most do not clean up.
