Doing a

  ./ -jN ... sets ,  N > 1

produces the following nbmake comment (?) for each *.tgz:

  cd /usr/src/distrib/sets &&  DESTDIR=/usr/dest  MACHINE=i386 MACHINE_ARCH=i386  CKSUM=/usr/toolchain-i386/bin/nbcksum MAKE=/usr/toolchain-i386/bin/nbmake MTREE=/usr/toolchain-i386/bin/nbmtree  MKTEMP=/usr/toolchain-i386/bin/nbmktemp PAX=/usr/toolchain-i386/bin/nbpax HOST_SH=sh  sh ./maketars -d /usr/dest   -N /usr/src/etc -t /usr/distrib/i386/binary/sets xcomp  || rm -f /usr/distrib/i386/binary/sets/xcomp.tgz
  nbmake: Child (13496) not in table?

The *.tgz are generated in a sequential order instead of the wanted

Is this a problem within the Makefile dependencies? Or a bug within
nbmake? (Worth a send-pr?)
