So far the approach is one job per CPU. I'll do some benchmarks lateron
to determine wether it really helps to run more jobs. For the KDE
ports, my gut feeling is that the improvement would be negligible. I'll
have to evaluate non-C++ ports like gnome-*, where the compilation time
per file is shorter.
Of course, to make proper use of distcc, at least #cores + 1 jobs are
required. I'll keep that in mind.
