Re: Bug#632228: csound: FTBFS on sparc

reassign 632228 src:scons

Apparently there is strong correlation between using "scons -j N" and crashing randomly on sparc:

1) Amongst all the packages that are currently in Build-Attempted state on sparc, there are only 3 that die with segfaults in random places: csound[0], ardour[1], nsis[2]. All of them pass -j to scons.

2) Except these three, there's only one scons-using package that use -j, namely syfi. It failed[3] on sparc recently as well.

3) No other scons-using package segfaulted on sparc in the recent past.

So it looks like scons -j option is crashy on sparc. I'm therefore reassigning the bug.

Dear csound, ardour, nsis and syfi maintainers: could you please try to work around this bug by not passing -j to scons (when building on sparc)?

SPARC porters cced, as I couldn't reproduce this bug on smetana. :(

Unfortunately, I still cannot reproduce the bug on smetana. Even when I set DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=parallel=2 (which is what sparc buildds use), csound still builds successfully.
