Like stalling a package entering Fedora for over a month due to the
failures not being reproducible on neither the submitter's nor the
reviewer's systems? Not to mention the lost man power?

We don't gain much by triggering Makefile bugs. Most upstream projects
don't design their Makefiles for -j usage, it just happens to work 98%
or less of the times.
