[erlang-questions] Can I build Erlang with make -j?

I'm building Erlang/OTP (using kerl, but I don't think that's
relevant) and it's taking forever. Can I use MAKEFLAGS=-j8 to make it
quicker? Is this supported?

I mean, sure, it *appears* to be working (though something's using
more than 8 cores, somehow, and my music playback's getting choppy).
But is it *guaranteed* to work?
