Now that Ubuntu 17.10 is released, I've prepared a debdiff for SRU,
(and in particular comment #8). Disabling parallel building should
work, and I would be willing to test and verify a package in -proposed.

I assume as soon as the BB archive opens, the new package version
will be synced automatically but due to the large packaging changes
mentioned above, we opted for a minimal patch to fix the issue in
17.10. If any patch pilots could take a look at it, that would be
great! :)
