Ed has a multi-processor system, so I tried to cvompile with -j2 on his 
system. The build didn't work correctly, IIRC the linking was wrong. It 
seemed to work, if I did a |make -j2| first to build the .o files, then 
a normal |make| to clean up the (library-)dependencies. If you have a 
single processor, forget about -j, unless the build system is garanteed 
to work with it.
