Update On Parallel make

Contributed by merdely on from the make-make-make dept.

J.C. Roberts let's us know that Marc Espie (espie@) posted an status update of his work on parallel make (make -j). Not only will the new make -j help with speeding up build times, but it may also prove to be useful in discovering some currently unknown bugs. All in all, it's a very interesting development.

This is a follow-up to a previous posting from Marc.

    This is why I use OpenBSD. I love to see good software made even better, instead of thrown out every three weeks and written from scratch. Props.
