If you have a concrete example (like: on netbsd-8 I can build rust with
MAKE_JOBS=12 on this machine, while with netbsd-9 I need to lower it to
MAKE_JOBS=4, otherwise it will {$XYZ,hang,take twice as long} we would
really appreciate a PR.

For me building rust and llvm (in all variants that appear in pkgsrc)
has always been a random failure in like 60% of the tries. Additionally
the firefox build itself hangs with a spinning python27 half of the time.

In my experience none of this really depends on the NetBSD version - but I 
have only relatively few data points.
