Trying to build using VC7.1, the build process chokes and breaks on *.pdb files. For instance:

e:/trees\20070613\mozilla\js\src\jsbool.c(0) : fatal error C1033: cannot open program database 'e:\trees\20070613\mozilla\js\src\js3250.pdb'
Summary: Build horked using VC71 and choking on *.pdb files → Build horked using VC71+"make -jN" ("cannot open program database *.pdb")

Issue error when building MSVC7 with -jN, rev. 1

Not pretty, but better than random build failures, and probably the best you can do with make.

A better option would be to use .NOTPARALLEL so that the build just works regardless of which compiler is used.

Use .NOTPARALLEL, rev. 1

You should probably remove that test: target.

This breaks because .NOTPARALLEL has a :: rule:

http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsblame.cgi?file=/mozilla/config/rules.mk&rev=3.564&mark=2140#2135

This actually horks non-parallel builds too :)
