>Isn't -j depend on how many cpu/core and a faster harddisk / raid?

Yes, it is. But with j1 you have only one job running at a time. On a dual core 
you can really easily running at least two jobs at the same time.
Then I've read a number of ideas about which is the relation between the number 
of cores and the optimal number of jobs.
I have been suggested something between n+1 and 2n+1

Of course the optimal number of jobs depends on the disk speed and similar.

But switching between 1 and 3 gives something like halving the time needed to 
compile everything.

Maybe it's possible that when building the kernel it gives some problem, but 
I'm thinking about compiling ports.

Or does portupgrade automatically chooses which -j to use?
