It prevents parallel ("make -j 4") build of ports, and your assumption
about how to set it is correct; alternatively, it can be given on the
make command line:
portmaster -mMAKE_JOBS_UNSAFE=yes multimedia/vlc.
It's described in Section 6.3.1 Building Ports in Parallel of the
porter's handbook, and apparently a bit out of date, because
MAKE_JOBS_SAFE=yes is now the default, and this feature must explicitly
Can someone from among the doc committers team please reflect the new
default in the Porter's Handbook? (I was looking at r42618.)
