I'm just wondering something like this could be implemented:

RCS file: /cvsroot/pkgsrc/mk/build/,v
retrieving revision 1.9
diff -u -r1.9
---    9 Nov 2006 02:53:15 -0000       1.9

 .if defined(MAKE_JOBS_SAFE) && !empty(MAKE_JOBS_SAFE:M[nN][oO])
 _MAKE_JOBS=    # nothing
-.elif defined(MAKE_JOBS)

Given that I don't see MAKE_JOBS_SAFE=no appearing in the relevant
places, it would give people like me who use this feature a place to
record packages that fail with this instead of modifying many
Makefiles and maintaining the changes in-tree.  IMHO, it's much easier
to set MAKE_JOBS_SAFE_OVERRIDE (or maybe it should be called
DISABLE_MAKE_JOBS) than edit individual Makefiles.
