Speed up make/cmake build with multiprocessing

Build time can be reduced by using multiple cores of your processor. Parallelization for make: make -j8 Parallelization for cmake: cmake --build <bindir> -- -j 8 Sometimes you cannot pass parameters directly to make. For example you are installing a python module using python setup.py install Setup script doesn’t accept parameters. Then you could pass them through environment variables: export MAKEFLAGS="-j 8" see also intro to CMake video, russian.
