That's a reasonable argument. (Also, parallelizing the configure phase
isn't feasible but seems highly desirable.)

On the other hand, each phase might need its own JOBS_SAFE logic :-|

But I suppose we shouldn't try to burn that bridge before we reach it,
and also one shouldn't change things unless it's clearly better than
not changing them, so probably best to stay put.

Plus the point of the part is to keep the number of consumers
of this variable down to a minimum, so later changes are not going to
become especially more difficult.
