By default everything will run a single job at a time. You can pass the argument --bjam-options="-jN" to the run.py script. This will tell bjam to use N parallel jobs. This at least will parallelize the build process. Not sure if the running of the tests themselves will happen in parallel or not; maybe someone else can chime in.
