So I was forced to read through a long (and well written) email before the crux of the matter appeared. If make should not be running these targets in parallel then this smells like an Automake problem to me.

No, from automake's perspective there are no dependencies between these targets. One target copies some libraries to the install directory. The other target copies some binaries to their install directory:

In that case automake's perspective is wrong since actual dependencies do exist. Automake should be fixed. :-)

Automake is the boss, but the boss must make reasonable demands that his subordinates will be able to faithfully carry out. The Pyramids were not built in three days.
