Given the fact that the build target is presumably -j safe (as far as the 
ports system is concerned), it would be nice to have a BUILD_JOBS in 
Mk/bsd.port.mk similar to INDEX_JOBS that is already there. Port maintainers 
then can also set WITHOUT_PARALLEL (or USE_PARALLEL=NO etc) for ports that 
break by themselves (f.e. www/lynx, editors/vim).
portmaster should then have no problem setting BUILD_JOBS on request.


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
