Definitely add it to UPDATING too. This will allow people who typically
do something like "make configure && make -j3" to now know that they
don't have to. It will also allow others to know why ports compilation
on their multi-core boxes suddenly uses a lot more CPU time.

BTW, Good work, Pav! Thank you for taking the time to do what so many of
us wanted but wouldn't do.
