It looks like some eclasses just resort to sed for that:

ohnobinki@ohnopublishing ~/portage $ grep -Re 'MAKEOPTS.*-j' /usr/portage/eclass
/usr/portage/eclass/toolchain.eclass:           export MAKEOPTS="${MAKEOPTS} -j1"
/usr/portage/eclass/waf-utils.eclass:   local jobs=$(echo -j1 ${MAKEOPTS} | sed -r "s/.*(-j\s*|--jobs=)([0-9]+).*/--jobs=\2/" )
/usr/portage/eclass/perl-module.eclass:                 export HARNESS_OPTIONS=j$(echo -j1 ${MAKEOPTS} | sed -r "s/.*(-j\s*|--jobs=)([0-9]+).*/\2/" )

So if you did something dirty like that, it would be enough to make
people happy ;-).
