I've always exported MAKEFLAGS in my shell, and I've not had a
problem with it yet.

The qt5 make command is:

make || make -j1

So if MAKEFLAGS=-j4 it will use that, and fallback to -j1 if it

export MAKEFLAGS=-j$(($(nproc)+1)) or a similar construct can be used
in the shell, so that shell startup scripts can be reused on
different machines.
