Attached is an updated patch with some improvements:

- The feature is turned on by a special target currently called
.PARALLELSYNC. No filename required.
- It uses stdout as its semaphore.
- It combines output into one temp file iff the inherited stdout and
stderr are already combined, as suggested by Howard Chu.

Very lightly tested, of course. See the Makefile.synctest for a usage example.
