Oh, I missed that. In that case we should probably specifically say -j1
for older EAPIs, and not for EAPI 5. From Exherbo's experience, some
packages do break without the -j1, but not very many. IIRC the -j1 got
in there originally because two of those packages used to be perl and
vim, which were two of the things we looked at when creating src_test.
