5 No. The -j option only affects the time it takes to compile, by
6 creating more threads during the compilation to use more processors.
7 It has absolutely 0 effect on the generated code.
9 However, you might want to investigate the USE flags nptl and nptlonly
10 if you don't have them set already, and make sure your kernel supports
11 SMP.

16 My crystal ball says that PC components get cheaper all the time, and
17 you should just buy what you can afford when you need it. I think I
