looking for assistance with "parallel" makefile, willing to pay
(not sure if this is appropriate, but i have a makefile just dropped
in my lap that has some issues, and if someone can clean it up, i'll
do better than virtual beer, i'll do real compensation. i'd be happy
to interac the problem solver $100 (CAD), so here we go.)
here is a package that is being built for x86-64 using wind river
as you can see, that cp command tries to copy a pile of header files
elsewhere, and that certainly seems to be the cause of this (alleged)
i've only started looking at this today, so it's going to take a
while to wrap my head around this, but it's hard to see how that error
can be other than a race condition based on the parallelization that's
been added to this code base.
if someone wants to isolate the problem and fix it, i'd be a happy
camper as i have lots of other stuff to work on.
p.s. finding a way to reproduce the build error would be just ducky,

on top of everything you wrote, look at the number of "sleep" calls
sprinkled around ... pretty clear someone knew there were timing
