Thanks for the responses. I guess you've convinced me that setting -j as a
function of cores/hyperthreading is probably a bad idea.

Question: the gnu make man page and the info writeup are not clear on the
effect of MAKEFLAGS. There's a lot of chatter about sub-makes, but it is not
clear that

env MAKEFLAGS='-j 4' make

is equivalent to

make -j 4

If anyone knows definitively, plz let me know. Otherwise, I'll get the
answer by experiment.

But if the above equivalence holds, then I agree that there's no need to
modify the slackbuild scripts.
