Thanks for your comments! I've done more tests on a new machine and, for
better or worse, was no longer able to reproduce the issue. Parallel
compilation now works fine; I'll keep collecting output from make, and
would post it here if the problem appears again.

One additional issue appeared, though: it seems that extension modules are
always built sequentially no matter what the value of MAKEFLAGS is. I've
seen that these are being built by a custom setup.py script. Do you think
it would be possible to parallelize this script? Would people be interested
in having a parallel version?
