How much parallelism can be teased out of the NetBSD build process?

make(1) is a pretty good dataflow analysis tool, if it is given enough information.

If one were building a cluster to do NetBSD builds, how big can it get before you have idled processors from insufficient work? Or, put another way, how much parallelism can we tease out of the NetBSD and pkgsrc build systems?

        pondering out loud,
