Try using make -P to unmix the output.  I don't know how well this
works in practice.  This flag seems to be quite broken -- it causes
the (standard) output to be spammed with messages like
"Remaking (sic) foo.o" and "Results of making foo.o" even when make
is requested to be quiet (make -s) and the results are null.

Using -P also has the side effect of accidentally avoiding the
longstanding bug of waiting for a select timeout for up to 100 msec
after each batch of jobs.
