Hi Jurko,
thanks for the comprehensive answer!

Ummh - wouldn't it then make sense to make this the default in the main
Boost Makefile for 1.35.0 ? It is just a wrapper around bjam, and simply
adding "-j 2" to


pretty much halfed my compilation time for Boost on a Core 2 Duo.

Likely many users will just call "make" and not bjam in order to compile
Boost, and "-j 2" doesn't hurt on single processor machines.

Thanks and Best Regards,
