that'd seem to be more of a question about the make tool you're using to
process the makefiles. GNU make has the -j option to execute jobs in
parallel, and that in general benefits from having more CPUs around,
assuming your memory allows for all the jobs to be executed in parallel
without swapping.

If you're building C/C++ code, check out ccache and distcc as well.
