I’ve tried integrating your changes (see attached), but I have a few questions:
- are we definitely sure that -djob-count is a no-op?  Couldn’t it be
useful in some cases, for some other makefiles (since that one is
supposed to be a general template)?  For now I suggest to keep it just
in case, and added a possible variant for MacOSX/BSD systems.
- the common definitions file could be defined as variable, wouldn’t
that be better for adaptability?
- btw: are we sure it needs to be added as a target in every case,
even though it’s supposed to already be \include-d in the ly files
- could you (even without testing) propose some updates to the Windows
makefile, or is it acceptable in your opinion to leave it unchanged
for now?
