Right it serializes build dependencies. The problem with crunchgen is
that a single command makes all of the OUTPUTS, so normally make will
spawn off the same command 3 times in parallel (which seems to cause
problems). To get around it, make it so you each of the OUTPUTS is
built in order and what occurs is a single crunchgen invocation that
the sees that the other OUTPUT targets are up-to-date and then
contintues along.

I'll give it a whirl.
