I'm not sure, but I think if you do this:

	make -j64 <foo>

it only spawns 64 processes to handle the top level make process. This
would mean we've got a couple of processes doing this:

	make -C bin
	make -C lib
	make -C sbin
	make -C usr.bin
	make -C usr.sbin

and the other processes will just quit, because they don't have anything
to do. Right? :-)
