POSIX source distributions should allow build in multithread mode

The problem here is that the building time on one core is slow. I think standard makefile should allow "make -j $thredsNumber". If it is not possible domake should get max cores/threads number and compile ide. It is possible?
I think we should use current makefile infrastructure to achieve this goal.

It is definitely possible. But IMHO it doesn't make much sense to just add this the current structure, mainly for two reasons: First, current mix of makefiles and shell scripts would make this rather difficult. Second, if I'm not mistaken Mirek plans changes to tarball building soon (perhaps next release), so everything done now would be probably overwritten in few months.
I think there is no point in any modification to the makefiles, until there is some clear vision of what should be the final result.
