:That makes sense too.  I will send mail to phk and ask him what his

    I don't think its going to matter either way.  For one thing, this
    is 'make', which isn't really a critical utility.  Secondly, unless
    make is managing a hundred children all at once I really doubt the
    difference in performance would be noticeable.  But its up to you.
