If you run a parallel make, e.g. to take advantage of multiple CPUs:

  make -j4

Then the compile fails, because it seems that one of the first steps in the Makefile creates a header file - but the dependency rules for this file are missing, so Make starts compiling other files when it should really wait until this file has been written first.

Yeah it's a now bug and annoys me quite a lot too.  Unfortunately it's a lot of work to fix.  )-:

I usually run something like 'make proto && make all -j4' as workaround.
