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.

URL: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/porters-handbook/building.html

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porter's handbook, and apparently a bit out of date, because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
be _disabled_.

Can someone from among the doc committers team please reflect the new
default in the Porter's Handbook?  (I was looking at r42618.)
