OS X breakage: make -j and 4 unexpected failures

Carter was having difficulty compiling on OS X 10.9 with Xcode 6.0, so I tried building head and ran into some issues.

1) I used to build using make -j, but this fails with cryptic errors now. ./validate (which uses -j) and "make" seem to work. The specific error (appearing somewhere during stage 2 build) is:

Couldn't figure out C compiler information!
Warning:             Make sure you're using GNU gcc, or clang

Furthermore, when trying to run ./validate --fast I run into 4 unexpected failures. If anyone can tell me how I can get the test suite to report the exact difference in output I will send those along.

Unexpected results from:
TEST="cabal01 T5435_dyn_asm subsections_via_symbols cabal06 T4801"
