[Discuss-gnuradio] Make -j<N> should now be working

Ticket #13 was reporting failure with parallel makes.

Invoking (after bootstrap & configure) make with the -j option causes it
to run as many instances in parallel as possible, dependencies allowing,
in order to take advantage of multiple processors or cores, or to have a
second instance run while the first was waiting for I/O, etc.  Normally
you put -j2 or -j3 to limit the maximum, as beyond that there is little

This was failing in gnuradio-core, but was fixed back in r3222.

Those of you tracking the new svn trunk--could you test this and confirm?

Incidentally, make -j doesn't break anything, and at one point had 1100
processes running in parallel to build various parts of the whole tree. So
when we get to 1024 core processors, we know we'll be able to take
advantage of them. :-)
