I believe the change was so that ncurses could be built using a parallel 
flag to make (-jX).

See:

http://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/viewcvs.cgi/x86/trunk/packages/ncurses/Makefile?r1=26&r2=60&p1=trunk/packages/ncurses/Makefile&p2=trunk/packages/ncurses/Makefile&root=livecd

(If that link gets garbled, go to viewcvs, svn.linuxfromscratch.org, 
navigate to the ncurses Makefile and view the diff of revision 60 and 26.)

Is there a problem with this approach?
