Thanks a lot.
I've applied these and ensured that distcheck works for me, too.
(BTW, in coreutils, distcheck includes "make syntax-check" -- at least
it used to)

I hope to actually review the changes later today.

The only missing pieces:
  - a timing comparison: does this result in a performance improvement?
  - a NEWS entry: every 70+-change-set deserves one ;-)
    One incidental improvement I've noticed: it fixes at least one bug
    that would cause an occasional parallel "make syntax-check" failure.
