Yes, but the -B option is there to force compat mode (even if -j is also
present).  Eg.  make -j1 -B will run in compat mode.
Setting .MAKE.MODE here is both accurate and handy since I was finding
every where I was using -B, I was also having to add .MAKE.MODE=compat to the
compand line.

I could do (in

.if ${.MAKEFLAGS:M-B} == ""
.MAKE.MODE ?= meta

but the above patch is more intuitive.
