Great feature, thanks!

I fire a pile of lazbuild commands off from a Makefile, but I've had
to prevent make from running them in parallel, due to an fpc file
(some link file, I can't remember), that always has the same name,
getting created in the output directory.  I should file a bug report,
temporary files belong somewhere else and at the very least should
have unique names.
