The line ALLOW_MAKE_JOBS is already commented out in 
/usr/local/etc/poudriere.conf  but it's active in

I remain a bit confused about how poudriere and make coordinate their
parallel job spawning activity. In the latest case the -J 2 on the
poudriere command line put two packages under construction, but the
ALLOW_MAKE_JOBS line in /etc/make.conf didn't result in parallel threads
building LLVM10. Clearly I don't understand the relationship between
builders, jobs, threads and (much!) more. 

Perhaps I've complicated matters by using testport on earlier,
successful, tries. Is there a significant difference if one just
wants to make  packages? I merely wanted to see how the
attempt would fail and hoped for more diagnostics. But it worked.
So, I tried bulk and that doesn't seem to work so well.

Thanks for reading!
