Because in most of todays build processes configure is one of the few
parts which still don't take advantages through multiple processors, I
want to ask if there has been some progress on that topic?

No one has come forth with patches, and the problem is a lot trickier
than you would think.  I'm not holding my breath for this to happen any
time soon.

How do you know what I would think?

Until you post patches for us to pick apart, we don't.  But the fact
that you are posting a request, rather than a patch, is relatively
decent evidence that you are aware that it is tough enough that you
aren't appearing to volunteer for the job.

Hmm, I'm no native english speaker, but it shouldn't have sounded like a request. I'm pretty aware how open/free source works and wouldn't request anything from any free project.

I just was curious if there was some progress on that topic besides what Ralf Wildenhues seemed to have tried out.

But you right with your assumption that I won't volunteer, but I assume it's still ok to ask nevertheless.
