Source: gcin
Version: 2.8.5+dfsg1-2
Severity: serious
Tags: patch

2.8.5+dfsg1-2 bumps dh compat to 10, and one change
in compat 10 is that it defaults to --parallel.

This causes frequent FTBFS:


gcc -Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gcin -o sim2trad sim2trad.o util.o gcin2.so locale.o gcin-conf.o gcin-icon.o -Wl,-z,relro -Wl,--as-needed -lgtk-x11-2.0 -lgdk-x11-2.0 -lpangocairo-1.0 -latk-1.0 -lcairo -lgdk_pixbuf-2.0 -lgio-2.0 -lpangoft2-1.0 -lpango-1.0 -lgobject-2.0 -lglib-2.0 -lfontconfig -lfreetype -lX11 -ldl -lm
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcin-im-client
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Makefile:125: recipe for target 'tslearn' failed
make[1]: *** [tslearn] Error 1

I can reproduce this with "dpkg-buildpackage -b -J100".

The proper fix would be to fix the dependencies in the Makefiles,
but a workaround is to go back to non-parallel building with:
