[racket-dev] Multiple 'raco make' processes

If the multiple 'raco make's would produce the same results, then there
should be no inconsistency, just duplicate work, right?

And my use case is a bit different... I need to spawn the multiple 'raco
makes', rather than have raco make spawn multiple racket instances (via the
-j flag). Although this particular setup will bear some examination.
