Hmm yes, that's certainly more likely.

But actually, "No child processes" is ECHILD, which (at least according to the
man page) fork() doesn't give.  So I'm guessing this is from wait() or
something similar.

It's failed again in the same way (and on the same buildd - peri).  The
odd thing is that nothing obviously related has changed since the previous
upload which built fine, and I don't recall seeing a build fail like this

I've successfully built on paer, and uploaded the result.

Looking at other recent failed builds on peri, I notice 3 others where make
died with "No child processes", which makes me suspect there's an issue with
this particular buildd:
