compile ports and base using both cores

Installing ports or upgrading the base system only uses around 50% cpu 
utilization (measured with the top utility) on my dual core machine. Is 
there some way I can get higher cpu usage?

/usr/src/UPDATING says don't use make -j. I tried installing with make -j 2 but it failed at some stage saying it 
couldn't find a directory. It works not using -j.

I'm using 7.0-BETA1.5 i386 on an AMD 64 system.
