Erm. Sorry. I meant freetennis

Sorry, my report was somewhat misleading/unclear. What's is happening is the
If you export MAKEFLAGS= let's say -j3, the following line:

build: patch build-stamp

in debian/rules creates an issue because it allows the patch and build-stamp
targets to be run simultaneously, which is obviously wrong as there are patches
applied on Makefile (and even if there wasn't anyway)

Of course, one could argue that I don't need to export MAKEFLAGS, but still.
