Yes. Maybe. There is need for a real namespace for these options.

It was suggested in the mentioned thread. But it breaks if you set
MAKE="make -jn" in your environment and then start compiling packages,
lets say optimized packages with pentium-builder or whatever.
For example building packages that use CDBS didn't work the last time I 
tried that. AFAIK 2.4 kernels don't build if you do that, too.
