Thanks, it seems promising - more so than I expected.

I've tweaked it so that the makefiles can control the behavior
rather than rely on user to specify -j /path/to/maxJobs.

.if ${.MAKE.LEVEL} == 0 && ${.MAKE.JOBS} > 8
# play nice with the others
.MAKE.JOBS.CMD:= /path/to/maxJobs
# this sets an upper bound - controls size of jobs table
.MAKE.JOBS.MAX!= expr 2 \* `sysctl -n hw.ncpu`
