Hi Noah,

A comment and a couple of questions:

- XFile.pm needs a copyright year update (which I can add, when given

- AFAICS this causes autom4te to continue but exit with an error status.
  The only difference with parallel make is that the message is
  adjusted.  Is that correct semantics?  Wouldn't it be safer to
  actually fatal() if we are running under parallel make?
  (Take this with a grain of salt; I don't know what I'm talking about.)

- BTW, is there real-world indication of build tools other than
  Automake-created Makefiles that may happen to invoke parallel autom4te
  instances, possibly indirectly?
  (I won't worry about this any further than asking now.)

Interestingly, this host still has lots other test suite failures .. in
another mail.

Cheers, and thanks for working on this!
