There's a similar bug with compat vs jobs mode in that stdout/stderr
actually being a TTY is not conveyed to the jobs children.  Gmake
conveys both stdout and stderr as TTY to children [1].  This causes
clang's color diagnostics to not be enabled by default with jobs mode
since it is looking at stderr for being a TTY.  It works fine in compat
I've been working around it with this to avoid the detection:
> /etc/make.conf:CFLAGS.clang+=   -fcolor-diagnostics
Ccache also wanted to pass this flag along if stderr was a TTY, which
meant that jobs mode and compat mode ended up using different caches
since one had the flag and the other did not.  I fixed the ccache port
to not hashing the flag entirely though in ports r408673 / 2016-02.

I had written this patch to "fix" bmake a few years ago,
 However I took another look at the problem last year and came up with
an entirely different patch.  I think the problem with my naive patch
there is that stderr/stdin are actually passed through the same pipe for
jobs mode, so my second attempt was to create a separate stderr pipe
similar to the existing job.outPipe, rather than the naive patch just
sending stderr to the real one.  I ran into more issues with that though
with interspersed messages IIRC.  I abandoned the work for that.
