This is not good at all.  This means that somehow make lost track of a
child process: that child process died and was somehow reaped, but make
either didn't catch the signal (which should not be possible) or else
make didn't handle it properly when it was caught... which seems
unlikely since I'd think we'd have a lot more instances of this

I wonder if you have the chance to try this on anything newer than Red
Hat Enterprise 3.  That's pretty old.  Is it still using a 2.4 kernel (I
know RHEL2 used a 2.4 kernel and RHEL4 used a 2.6 kernel, but I have no
idea what RHEL3 used)?
