The usual thing to do is to set MAKE_JOBS_SAFE=no in the Makefile.

I am always doing MAKE_JOBS=10 or 12. I build either on a quad-core i7 with
hyper-threading (thus 8 vcpus) or on a Google Compute Engine highcpu
instance with 8 cores (which is about the same).

These have worked for me before (on NetBSD, that is). Interesting. Are you
sure it's not a local issue?
