revision 1.56

Serialise making the "sets" tarballs in the maketars target.
On many systems, making them in parallel causes very poor
system performance due to disk I/O.  (Requested by jmmv.)

On my development system this adds a lot of time to a release build, and I'd
like to revert it. My system is not affected, but if it were I don't see
why any of these would not be a valid solution:

o use smaller value for -j
o analyze the problem on the affected systems
o buy more spindles
