Thanks for this patch. I had a look, and did some testing. It appears
that the issue doesn't appear on a systematic fashion (like one time
out of 5 to 10 builds), which typically leads one to think it's a
parallel build problem.

But we're building Ruby with $(MAKE1), which means we're not doing
parallel build, so the problem should appear every time, no? Do you
have an explanation as to why the problem only appears from time to
