Most people don't understand the purpose of building with MAKE_JOBS_UNSAFE.
It is not that it will make the build work, though, on rare occasion, it
does. It is to serialize the build so that the actual error is shown at the
time that the build fails.

Most modern ports build in parallel with multiple compiles running at the
same time. An unfortunate side effects is that the details of the error are
at some seemingly random point in the output of the build, even hundreds of
lines from the failure and termination of the build. Attempting to build
with MAKE_JOBS_UNSAFE makes it much easier to determine exactly what failed
and the output of that build is what should be provided in report like
this. While a PR should include the full log, even here it is better to use
the serial build to make life easier on whoever works on the PR.
