Re: [PATCH 2/2] -fwhopr=jobserver



So for this reason it would be really nice to have things as transparent
as possible.  I guess GNU Make is not nice enough to drop us some environment
variable or something? :(

There are some, but not sure they are unique.


Maybe we can fix make. The other problem currently is that you have to mark the rule
with + to force jobserver for the rule, otherwise it only does that when it thinks
you're invoking a submake. I was thinking about adding a new option to make to force
this for all rules, to avoid hacking makefiles everywhere.


While doing that could also add a new environment variable for this.

But short of hacking make I think my patch is a reasonable improvement, won't you agree?
