The build faq (that I have) states:
"Due to some new developments with parallel compiling using the FPC
makefiles, make 3.80 is strongly recommended as of FPC 2.1.1 (januari
2007 and later). Unix people with dual cores and up to date source trees
might want to try ?make -j 2?."

With an eye on increasing fpcup [1] performance:
1. Does make -j work reliably on Windows, too?
2. I intend to detect the number of logical cores as per
and run that many jobs. Is that a good idea?
3. If somebody could extend the detection code wiki article for FreeBSD,
I would appreciate it ;)
