Pretty much any package doesn't work properly.

If the package uses g++ for compilation, no CFLAGS are used at all (for 
example, aurbuild -s nanodc) and neither are MAKEFLAGS (-j3). Well maybe they 
are, just the package's Makefiles cannot support it... but I doubt it.

If a package uses C (such as irssi-svn), then the flags are passed, so 'only' 
MAKEFLAGS don't work.

Hope this helps...
