what I tried was to remove the AM_MAKEFLAGS = -j 4 completely and then
make -j 4 clean all at the top level. At the same time I watched the processes with top.
In the old build (with AM_MAKEFLAGS = -j 4), top normally shows up to 4 processes running cc1plus.
After removing the AM_MAKEFLAGS = -j 4, I never saw more than one cc1plus process, even though
I did make -j 4 clean all at the top level. This might as well be caused by the way how automake
constructs the makefiles rather than by make itself. No idea what exactly is happening. But I suppose that
everybody is happy with the current solution.

Passing down -j verbatim doesn't make sense because sub-makes are also spawned in parallel so you would end up running more tasks than requested. Manual also says it shall simply pass -j to sub makes when it's given without a number to mean unlimited number of parallel tasks. https://www.gnu.org/software/make/manual/html_node/Options_002fRecursion.html#index-job-slots_002c-and-recursion -k
