Follow-up Comment #2, bug #56484 (project make):

> I don't think this could be an opt-out because make has a very longstanding
expectation that prerequisites are built in left-to-right order (with -j1).

Is it explicitly documented or just an implicit behavior? When I think of it:
if the order isn't guaranteed with -jn, what would be the reason for -j1 make
an exception other than an accident? And I doubt nowadays developers and
distro packagers aren't using the -j option to speed up compilation. Hence the
out-of-order compilation should be widely tested by now.

So, if there's no explicit documentation for the order, I'd rather vote for

P.S.: sorry, I couldn't answer, because I reported the bug through savannah
site, which turned out to be absolutely terrible (that is, the TL;DR). I had
to create this throw-away account to be able at least to reply.
