[Solution 3]
Try to fix parallel make, make bug with patch upstream.
Integrate existing bits from

http://sources.gentoo.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/gentoo-x86/sys-fs/e2fsprogs/files/e2fsprogs-1.41.8-makefile.patch?revision=1.1&view=markup

and

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2210763&group_id=2406&atid=102406

with that.


[Solution 4]
Patch out test program, not cool :-)


Anyone got time for solution 3?

The currently user^^ parameters

  --disable-libblkid \
  --disable-libuuid \
  --disable-fsck \
  --disable-uuidd

looks a bit wierd.  But if that's right, I'm not objecting to a move to
that.

Best,



Sebastian
