Follow-up Comment #2, bug #52697 (project make):

Maybe I forgot to make clear what the main problem is:
the -j switch takes not care about ram and this is becoming more and more the
important limit - especially in object orientated languages there should be
something preventing starting more compile processes. Even on my 12GB
workstation I ran into memory problems *, while I would like the -j13 to speed
up compiling the packages where it works.

Thanks for your patience. I think I should go to sleep before I write more
hard to understand stuff. Anyways, I have the idea since a long time and
thought about ist also when I was not tired. ;-)

* With certain packages the whole system gets stuck swapping and I have to
stop the whole update (which can be tricky when the system is hardly
responding), edit my make.conf, do a "emerge --oneshot" on that package, edit
my make.conf back to -j and continue with my "emerge --deep --newuse --update
