/etc/make.conf from the host system is not used by poudriere, as it aims
to provide clean-room builds and therefore doesn't use configurations
that also serve a purpose on the host system.

All configurations come from /usr/local/etc/poudriere.conf and
various files in /usr/local/etc/poudriere.d/. See also the
CUSTOMISATION section in poudriere(8) (reading that man pages is useful
in general).

So if you want to use this feature, you need to enable it in
poudriere.conf (but I would still recommend using
ALLOW_MAKE_JOBS_PACKAGES instead and also only if you don't use
multiple builders, given the limited resources of your machine).

As someone pointed out earlier in this thread, looking at the
poudriere build log of a failed build (and maybe sharing it) could help
to find a solution.
