FPC itself is single threaded. So for that the single thread rating is 
more important. However Lazarus (and fpmake) can parallelize the 
building of packages if they don't depend on each other. On the other 
hand this is only really important when rebuilding and not when doing 
normal builds.

So in my opinion I'd keep an eye on the single thread rating.
