Apparently, it's a part of graph, not a library in its own right. From

I missed this at the time. This is the kind of thing that the release
managers should be told about. Do we need to make that clearer
I think parallel graph really should be in a subdirectory of graph.
Cmake should understand that libraries in subdirectories are separate,
we do it in a few other places. Is it too late to move it now?
And since it's a part of graph, the main graph documentation should
link to it. Probably on the first page of its documentation.
