Package: isc-dhcp
Version: 4.2.2-1
Severity: normal

A parallel build using for example "dpkg-buildpackage -j7" often fails,
because debian/rules contains the following rules.
    build: build-arch build-indep
    build-arch: build-stamp
    build-indep: build-stamp
1:  build-stamp: patch-stamp patched-ldap/build-stamp
2:  patched-ldap/build-stamp:

(1) leasds to the source tree being patched and configured in parallel,
because (2) doesn't declare, that it needs to work on the already
patched tree.

Solution: Change (2) to
    patched-ldap/build-stamp: patch-stamp

Fix parallel build dependency

During parallel build, aclocal may be called on the still un-patched source
tree, parallel to the source tree being patched. This later results in an error
when configure invoked with the LDAP patch being applied.

Add a dependency on the patched source tree before building the LDAP enabled
