Michal, debian policy _requires_ BS to build debian packages with a
single CPU, if not stated _otherwise_.

I wouldn't be surprised it the policy also required any package to fit on a 3.5" floppy. But most of the world uses neither floppies nor UP machines nowadays, so makefiles are expected to work fine with -j. If not, it's a bug.

But now you now got what you wanted, so the BS is super compliant, just a little bit unusable for building deb packages. *sigh*

Probably, I should consult an attorney before further commenting to this

Huh? :-)
