Package: gnupg2
Version: 2.2.4-1
Tags: patch

gnupg2 sometimes randomly fails to build from source.

The reason is, that the tests are started in parallel, which then generates
a system load of ~ 40 on the 4-way hppa machine (probably due to slow atomic
operations and slow fork() implementations). That then makes that the waiting
in the tests often times out and thus breaks the build.

The attached patch disables the parallel tests on hppa and thus fixes the problem.

While at it, the patch re-enables "-pie" again on hppa, now since "-pie" 
works on hppa.
