i globally use

MAKEFLAGS="-s -j$( cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep processor | tail -n1 | awk ' {
print  $3 + 1 } ')"

but i can confirm, with nss i have to use 'make -j1' to overwrite the
global setting.

there are other packages where i have to use -j1:
make : groff, dmraid, nss
test : openssl, patch, tar
install : perl, python.

this is true for 2 (cor2duo E8200) or 4 (i3 530) processors.
