I have not found any technical problems with > MAKE="make -jn" in it yet, but then I'm on dialup. 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. Robert.
