What is in openjdk7 seems bogus and it isn't clear why it is there:
is defined implying that MAKE_JOBS should always be 1 (and -j never set)
but it does some weird things with the global variables

Can the generic handling in b.p.m not work?

IMHO MAKE_JOBS_SAFE=yes should be defined and either b.p.m or
should be handling the special build code.
