[Exherbo-dev] jobs: build option?

MAKEOPTS -jblah is icky and doesn't port to other build systems, and I
hate those "convert MAKEOPTS to OTHER" hacks Gentoo uses.

Do we want to hack this into options / build_options somehow? We could
have something like:

    jobs: 4

Or if we have non-boolean flags, something like:

    build_options: jobs=4

Then we'd export this via a special EXJOBS variable.

Packages would probably also want:

    ATTRIBUTES="unparallelisable"

or something, so we don't show jobs: for packages where it does nothing
and where we can't already know that it does nothing.

Discuss.
