Things indeed work correctly now (albeit I don't see a gnulib update
in the Gettext git history ?!?  Puzzled).

And "make -j16" almost works for me -- apart from this failure in
test 'lang-guile':

  In ice-9/boot-9.scm:
   149: 2 [catch #t #<catch-closure 1c031c0> ...]
   157: 1 [#<procedure 1ba00f0 ()>]
  In unknown file:
     ?: 0 [catch-closure]

  ERROR: In procedure catch-closure:
  ERROR: Throw to key `decoding-error' with args `("scm_from_stringn" \
    "input locale conversion error" 22 #vu8(50))'.

I likely won't be able to look into it nor to provide feedback anytime
soon though.  Sorry.
