Well, actually there are some settings that might allow you to do this.
On a very granular level, you can set PKGSRC_LOCKTYPE and manually run
make in multiple directories. I've used this with some success in the past.
Another setting that I haven't used, but sounds promising based on
what's in mk/defaults/mk.conf, is MAKE_JOBS, which adds a -j<whatever>
to the individual package builds. However, it says it's experimental,
so I have no idea how well it works in practice.
