Parallel Makes don't work :(

Hi all,

I just thought I'd drop a line to the list, saying that parallel makes are 
broken right now. It's fairly obvious that this comes because the stuff in 
nsswitch/ starts compiling before include/proto.h is done building. I've 
noticed that if I cancel make after proto has finished building, and then 
restart make with multiple jobs, make builds in parallel and finishes 
building quite nicely, but only if proto has already been made. 

Any Makefile experts want to comment on this?
