"over the internet" implies widely ramified machines in different admin
domains, no shared FS, poor interconnect, etc. since compilation, on today's
machines, is quite IO, rather than compute-bound, this is going to be a problem.
it's no big deal to do parallel makes in a _cluster_, where you have some
decent queueing system, shared filesystem, etc. in fact, I did an experiment
where I simply said
in a makefile, with gnu "make -j 2" for instance, and it worked as expected.
