Are you using a dual (or more) processor system?

I assume: on (a) different machine(s) ?

Well, what I saw on a dual core machine was that make seems to use only
one processor, and therefore I got similar CPU usage (< 50%).
Try make -j2 or make -j3 and see if you get better results. This worked
I will at somepoint be able to take advantage of this :)
