LOCALBASE/etc/poudriere.conf has some settings for this:

# By default MAKE_JOBS is disabled to allow only one process per cpu
# Use the following to allow it anyway

# List of packages that will always be allowed to use MAKE_JOBS
# regardless of ALLOW_MAKE_JOBS. This is useful for allowing ports
# which holdup the rest of the queue to build more quickly.
ALLOW_MAKE_JOBS_PACKAGES="pkg gcc cmake py*"

MAKE_JOBS is a ports framework variable (see Mk/bsd.port.mk)
