The -j flag for make is either set on the command line (takes precedence) or

Try "echo $MAKEFLAGS", to see what is in there. If it is empty, well, this
is something else. Do you use some kinf of cache (say config.site or so)?
MAKEFLAGS is maybe defined there.

OTOH, it is always possible to replace "make" with "make -j1", whether in
scripts or on the command line.
