epstool: unable to open output file './epsobj/xnodll.o'

Description (last modified by mojca (Mojca Miklavec))

Upgrading epstool fails with:

:info:build /usr/bin/clang -I./src -I./epsobj -I/opt/local/include -DX11 -DUNIX -DNONAG  -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations -Wmissing-prototypes -fno-builtin -fno-common -Wcast-qual -Wwrite-strings  -g      -o ./epsobj/xnodll.o -c ./src/xnodll.c
:info:build mkdir ./epsobj
:info:build error: unable to open output file './epsobj/xnodll.o': 'Error opening output file './epsobj/xnodll.o''
:info:build 1 error generated.
:info:build echo "dummy" > ./epsobj/lib.rsp
:info:build make: *** [epsobj/xnodll.o] Error 1
:info:build make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

To me this looks like the wrong order of commands, that is:

mkdir ./epsobj

should probably happen before the compiler tries to write to -o ./epsobj/xnodll.o

After repeating the build it seems to go through successfully.

I suggest to either disable parallel build with

use_parallel_build  no

or try to fix the problem properly, possibly coordinating with upstream developers.

I have mailed the developer and got no answer. The epstool web page implies the project is frozen or at least infrequently reviewed by its author. So blocking parallel build seems to be the best option.
