With fpmake "-j x" isn't usable anymore, because AFAIK Joost found no 
way to "hook" into Make's threading mechanism to utilize that for 
fpmake. So you'll need to use the parameter above (which is handed over 
to fpmake). As threading is basically only useable when compiling the 
packages this shouldn't make a big difference to the "-j" approach.
