[paludis-user] MAKEOPTS too high?

When installing paludis (or other packages) I get the infamous message that my -j value is too high.  Right now I have it at -j5 and have a quad core processor with 2 gig of memory.  

I'm pretty sure my machine can handle the load.  Is there any way I can change the level of "too high" to silence the error?  

Perhaps paludis could take number of cores into account when it makes the decision?
