make -j for simultaneous builds

Just checking if there is any reason the "make jobs" for simultaneous builds would not work when compiling under linux (2.6.9). It appears to build and run fine but I wanted to verify that we are not missing something. This greatly increases our rebuild times, increasing the usefulness of insure++.
Thank You

    Hi Medent,

    Parallel make, (via "make -j4", for example), works just fine. The only possible issue is one of code coverage. If you intend to use Insure++'s code coverage, then you should add:
    use_lockf 10

    To your .psrc file. This allows the coverage map file to be synchronized against simultaneous access by the parallel jobs. If you don't care about coverage analysis, then this step is not necessary.
