[toplevel patch] Up with parallelism!


Up with parallelism.

I don't have an actual multiprocessor machine, but I did test with 
'make -j 4 bootstrap' and 'make -k -j 4 check'.

	* configure.in: Death to serialization dependencies.
	* configure: Regenerated.
	* Makefile.tpl: Death to serialization dependencies.  Death
	to .NOTPARALLEL.
	* Makefile.in: Regenerated.
