That may be true, but it does support a job option. [1] I also don't
get the point of this topic, since $MAKEFLAGS simply contains a
hyphen, a character, and a number:


In fact, the job option WAF supports has a shorthand -j, making it
directly compatible with Autotools. I maintain several WAF-based
packages, take a look at them.

As for SCONS, I don't recall appending $MAKEFLAGS to any of the builds
