Most people are reporting success with -j4 but it's more about the build 
being done in parallel rather than a particular number of cores. I 
confirmed with -j2 here since I'd rather not force -j4 or -j8 on people 
with a single core or who intentionally limit to just one.

I suppose nothing sums up the situation better than this:
make ${MAKEFLAGS:-${NUMJOBS:-j$(($(getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN)+1))}}

Thanks Johannes & David for suggestions
