make install / parallel

Does automake allowing doing something like:

make -j5 install  ?

I ask because executing /usr/bin/install for several thousand files is
incredibly slow (it takes longer to install than to build each of
these files).  Running several in parallel may make it go faster, as
there's a lot of IO and very little CPU in the make install process.
However, times don't seem to change when I do it.  Any ideas?
