Splendid so I will just drop the max-jobs one.
Now we have the GMAKE_OPTIONS that affect gbuild and --with-num-cpus that 
affects dmake right? Or they still kinda collide with each other?

Thanks for the explanation (Both of you Norbert and Bjoern, I am too lazy to 
reply to both mails :-]).
It makes sense with the dmake still around but in the long run I think it is 
better to print some information to the user / describe it in the compilation 
guide. If someone is too lazy to read that, they deserve to compile it for 6 
hours :D
