In gdb-land, parallel make check runs collect all the subdirectory
.sum files and reconstruct testsuite/${tool}.sum.

There's more than one solution of course: alternatively one could have
gdb stop doing this.  But I'm not sure which is better, and rather
than change gdb I went for changing (which made
sense regardless of what gdb is doing: use the same .sum files in the
comparison).  Could be missing something of course. :-)
