I'd say this is a subtle bug in Make that should be solved in some
better way.  There's no relation whatsoever between the maximum length
of a pipe and the maximum number of parallel jobs that can be run on a
system, except an implementation detail of the GNU Make jobserver.
OTOH, I can easily imagine a system with more than 4K cores, where
such a limitation will really hurt.
