The basic feature can be tested trivially like this:

  all: one two

  one two:
          @echo start $@
          @sleep 1
          @echo stop $@

Now if you run this using "make -j" you'll get:

  start one
  start two
  stop one
  stop two

If you run this using "make -j -O" you should get:

  start one
  stop one
  start two
  stop two

There's more to test than that: before it's done we need to test
recursive make invocations for example.  But the above is simple.
