If I try that here (not with M-x compile), I get the message
"Multi-processing is not supported for this system"
(RedHat 8.0 with CVS emacs)

I have problem slightly similar to CarlC's, though.
I need a program to stop at a certain point, and wait until a
comint-process gives some output, and then and only then continue.
(Also, the user shouldn't be able to move the point...)
I thought accept-process-output would do that, but that doesn't seem
to work.  What should work?
