It depends a great deal on the construction of the Makefiles in the 
package you are building as to whether higher -j levels will make any 
difference. For a lot of packages, it would seem to be useful, but I 
have also seen that going beyond -j3 doesn't make a lot of difference 
(it does for building the Linux kernel, though).
