This variant works for me.

@@ -1074,7 +1074,9 @@ blib : $(BLIB)
 # Command to generate build ID.  Must be unique for each $(BIN)/%.tmp,
 # even within the same build run.

-BUILD_ID_CMD   := perl -e 'printf "0x%08x", int ( rand ( 0xffffffff ) );'
+BUILD_ID_DIR    := .build_ids

 # Build timestamp

It might now work with 'make -j', but that can be solved by
'find  \( -name "*.rom" -o -name "*.tmp" \) -delete ; make'


Let me know how you want to sort this out.
