GLIBC is overly flexible, to the point of being painful.

It is designed in such a way that you cannot even do a fully parallel
build. It can only parallelize in one directory at a time.

It stats files like crazy, in every subdirectory it visits, in order
to implement this prioritization scheme.

It is the most inefficient build system that I am aware of for such an
important code base.
