Hi gang,

  I saw something last night that made me wonder why I've not seen it used in

  What it is, is the use of -j<n>, and it has something to do with using more than
  one processor during ./configure of an app/program or something, making it
  build(?) faster.

  I'm sure I don't understand it correctly but it made sense where I read/saw it (on
  the Haiku site btw, here http://www.haiku-os.org/guides/building/compiling-x86).

  Is that something that's used only for building a version of gcc or...?

  Could it be used in a SlackBuild of an app if I were to build it just for my own
  system (being's there's too many systems out there nowadays with differing
  numbers of cpu's on them), and would it help anything?
