16? That's double from last I checked.  It just doesn't make any sense
to me do go to that trouble.  It takes 4+ hrs on my best box to compile
- too long a cycle for me to test patches.  To have to patch in order to
make a relocatable binary is just insane.

Just to clarify:

Sagemath compile does work fine on Slackware stable and current as long
as you build in the final target directory.

I'm just a simple country chemist.
