hmm... i was just trying to understand how to enhance my packges for
parallel build. (BTW how do you rebuild the whole archive?)

if i got it right, those packages built using make & co should not need
any modification, while others (eg boost) which use other build systems
(eg bjam) may need some more work.

in the latter case, is there any conventional way to parse DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS?
last time i read about it there were a couple of ways both having dark
sides... ah.. BTW google is not able to provide me any documentation
of DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS. where is it documented?
