Thanks. Did that.

Just want to know whether the locking applies to downloading of dist files

Secondly, make does parallelize its jobs. However is there any way by
which the overall dependency build could be parallelized. For example,
when I am downloading for a dependency, my CPU is nearly idle. Might as
well build another dependency in the meantime. Will be great if pkgsrc
could do this automatically.
