A while back, parallel builds (-jN) were fixed to avoid use of sh -e
(thanks jmc!).  But compat mode still uses it and this is apparently
not compatible with Posix 

At least when .POSIX: is present in a makefile, -e should not be used,
but I suspect it would be better to ditch it all together.
This would at least be compatible with -jN ;-)
