That's because sequencing is implicit. Autoconf generates 'configure', which is a shell script, and shell commands are executed in sequence.

Since a test can depend on a previous test's results, parallelizing that shell script would be tricky: it'd mean Autoconf would need to know which tests depend on which other tests, and this information is only partly specified now.

Rather than try to re-engineer Autoconf, have you tried executing the 'configure' scripts with PaSH? See <>.
