I am wondering if someone could test the njob patches on actual SMP
hardware. I have only been able to test it on single CPU machines so
far. It seems to work just fine, and I see no reason why it should not
work on SMP, but it is always interesting to hear about actual results.

So, anyone experienced with pkg_comp, who has an SMP machine, and are
willing to test some (IMHO) cool stuff. Find the patches here:

Perhaps some graphs with NJOBS=1, 2, 4, .. could be fun. Also remember
that building ONE package with this stuff is useless. The
parallelization works on package level only. Not on source files
inside the packages. So just add a bunch of packages and do some time
measurements! :-)
