Thanks for the hint.
I did so while debugging the misbehaviour of the port.

Since the port uses gmake, I found that there is also an optional tag named 


which I have declared within the specific subtree of the port - and this leaves the rest being
built parallel and the documentation portion serialised. That works, too.

Tahnk you very much.
