Two questions...

1) Is the -j <n> option still needed, now that we moved to fpmake with
the -T option? Sven said the -j option isn't usable any more.

usually specify the number of cores +1 (this was recommended all over
the internet messages I read). The -T in fpmake means threads as far
as I understand. So a i7 quad core can handle 8 threads
simultaneously. So then in that case I would  specify -T 8.  Is this
