I finally could build this package sucessfully at smetana.debian.org. No
problems appeared with the sid dchroot, so this seems to be indeed a race
condition because lebrun seems to be a faster box than smetana.

I plan to upload a new NMU with minimal changes.

One is just calling the offending target (where things fail) with -j1. Seems
that the only way to really test this in a equivalent box is a new upload
(Yes, I hate this).

I also plan to fix lintian error 

 * E weak-library-dev-dependency                                                                                                                                      
          * ivtools-dev on libiv1 (>= ${binary:Version})                                                                                                                  
          * ivtools-dev on libiv-unidraw1 (>= ${binary:Version})                        

Since I uploaded last NMU and changes are minimal, I will probably do this
with no delay and soon. I will however wait a couple of days for
suggestions/objections. Comments are of course welcome.
