Hi Gerd,

Please find attached a patch that amends the default behaviour if the
--max-jobs option is not specified, to using a value equal to the number of
CPU cores, as suggested in a previous post. The documentation is also
amended to reflect the change. This halves the execution time of mkgmap for
building a map of Staffordshire on my 8-core PC when --max-jobs is not
specified (I didn't know about this option previously and was unaware the
performance could have been improved).
