It seems to be fixed with:

commit 49d06a1ec3bf7dfc3a33c8c0fe375a3702e9593a
Author: Bruno Haible <bruno@clisp.org>
Date: Sun Sep 14 12:45:04 2008 +0000

Use $(mkdir_p) to create subdirectories of the build directory.

Makefile.gnulib in that folder has the following:

glib/ghash.h: glib/ghash.in.h
test -d glib || mkdir glib

glib/glist.h: glib/glist.in.h
test -d glib || mkdir glib

mkdir fails there when building with -j2 (intermittenly of course, for me it happens on ArchLinux but not on Ubuntu). It should do "mkdir -p" or something similar instead.
