ok, the -j 4 is the problem

running "make -j 4 install-bin install-traceevent-plugins"

BUILD: Doing 'make -j4' parallel build
BUILD: Doing 'make -j4' parallel build

will run paralel make instances for install-bin and install-traceevent-plugins
which will eventually touch same files and crash..

the main perf Makefile is actualy detecting number of cpus
and runs Makefile.perf with -j X option so there's no need
to specify it on top level.. you can always customize it via
JOBS=X make variable

so if you don't specify the -j X option it will run the
'Makefile.perf install-bin install-traceevent-plugins' with
-j X set and it should execute sequentialy and fix your problem
