Shouldn't the following variables be mentioned in the Porter's
Handbook and in ports(7)?
# - This port can safely be built on multiple cpus in parallel.
# The make will be invoked with -jX parameter where X equals
# number of cores present in the system.
# - Disallow multiple jobs even when user set a global override.
# To be used with known bad ports.
# - Set to disable the multiple jobs feature. User settable.
# - Force all ports to be built with multiple jobs, except ports
# that are explicitly marked MAKE_JOBS_UNSAFE. User settable.
# - Override the number of make jobs to be used. User settable.
This is incredibly useful and a lot of ports actually compile cleanly
with MAKE_JOBS_SAFE, though they are still not yet marked as such.
