Sure, even on a single CPU -jX (X > 1) can be faster, but it depends on
various factors, such as available memory, and other load on the
machine. Using -j is not something that should be on by default, but it
would be *really* nice if it were easy to turn on, for any package. Same
with other compilation options, as it happens.
Yet another quit message no-one will ever comment on.
