I think it's a question for the SA list, though doing some searches
I don't see any indication that sa-compile is capable of using more
than 1 cpu at a time. The code that's compiling has to be coded in
a way that makes it safe to build it in parallel. And last I checked
at least gcc by itself only used 1 CPU, you use multiple cpus by
splitting the workload up and running multiple gccs, typically
with make files and "make -j #".
