I have a quad core machine, and I found that (after a bit of checking) that about 95% of my improvements could be cotten with a -j4 setting. It did keep on improving, but only very little, up to -j8.

AT -j8 it was about 18 minutes. I do have more accurate numbers, if folks are curious. I did buildworlds, so no kernel built, and the environment was with all the files from a previous build in place.

heh, i have appropriately renamed the thread.  :)  with -j 8
