Dear MKL Team,
I find that the current makefile of the FFTW interfaces, for example, /opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2017.4.196/linux/mkl/interfaces/fftw3xf/makefile, do not allow multiple jobs using the -j X command line argument. The bug is minor and it should be easy to fix. The current rule for make lib is:
lib: clean mkresdir $(INSTALL_DIR)/$(INSTALL_LIBNAME) cleanup
which runs a cleanup step in the end. However when one job deletes the folder containing the compiled object files, the rest jobs are still building and will encounter an error. It will be really nice to speed up the build if you could fix this issue. Thank you so much.
I'm glad to notify you that the fix version should be ready in MKL 2019 version. which is available by intel registration center or YUM, APT now.
Could you please to try it and let us know if any feedback.
P.S How to get Intel MKL etc:
