So bug is still there. However...
Let's see what --output-sync=target does?
So turning on output syncing actually works around the problem, I assume by
closing the standard file descriptors and redirecting them to pipes back to the
main make process before forking. Now I just have to build make-4.0 for ubuntu
12.04LTS and mac and get that distributed to all machines and teach people
to sync their output.
Any ideas about the original bug though?
it seems you're building some Erlang programs?. Some Klarna/LM
Ericsson language? I used to work for LM Ericsson Oy AB in Finland a
long time ago.
Yes, both Klarna and Campanja
have huge Erlang code bases. Stdapp,mk was made by Richard Carlsson at
Klarna for compiling huge Erlang projects.
