Log message:
Fix a 10-year-old pointer-arithmetic bug in make,
introduced on 1997-12-16, make/job.c revision 1.8.

This should fix the CPU spinout bug when running make with a -j option --
from now on, `make -j24` successfully completes the kernel build on my
Core 2 Duo, instead of halting the build and eating one CPU until ^C.

Found and debugged by myself, with the help of malloc.conf options.
