This is caused by Travis Mac resources being insufficient. There is a
multiple day backlog for Mac jobs, and it doesn't seem to be going away -
Travis increased their job count from 180 to 204 temporarily for the
weekend, it didn't help, the backlog is at the moment at 1100+ and keeps
growing. Look at for the stats.

This should in principle not affect the Linux-only .travis.yml
configurations, but it does, because the queued Mac jobs result in only 3
parallel jobs being available for Linux builds, instead of the usual 5.

I'd say that boostorg/math might scale down its Mac jobs a bit. :-)

If this persists, we should probably not use Mac jobs at all, although they
are kind of essential for Config and Build. Most other repos have a single
Mac job, with a few exceptions.
