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? :-)
