Of course, that is full of open problems too. The main one is that each
gcc process consumes potentially a lot of RAM, so just passing "-j" is
not a great idea, as all gccs are started in parallel. It looks like
some obscure tweak is needed, like setting -j to a number that depends
not only on the number of CPUs (as is classically done) but also on the
total RAM of the system...
