I will check into this... I use ccm all the time on my i7-4790 (9 threads) and see all 8 cores used up. Isn't the default values for MAKEFLAGS 2? Is the bug causing it to use /etc/makepkg.conf on the live filesystem or the default one installed by pacman?

@graysky many thanks for providing this package. I think it had been broken by change in devtools , perhaps this one , which results in makechrootpkg removing MAKEFLAGS set in root/etc/makepkg.conf . The result of this is that THREADS set in ~/.config/clean-chroot-manager.conf is ignored. The working workaround is hinted at in comments to #44827 , which is to create/update ~/.makepkg.conf like this:

I would suggest that, given the availability of a workaround, the proper fix would be to entirely remove THREADS from ~/.config/clean-chroot-manager.conf and scripts, and instead advice user to create/update ~/.makepkg.conf with MAKEFLAGS option.

@graysky: Thanks for your reply. :)

I'm compiling firefox-kde; this package does take a lot of time to build, by tweaking makepkg.conf, adding ccache (although I understand it doesn't work), I hope to improve the build time.

The package I'm using (kmozillahelper) doesn't have Python2/3 as makedeps, so I just installed it manually to the chroot by using the arch-nspawn command.
You are correct this should be corrected in PKGBUILD, but sometimes you may want to install additional packages without having to modify the PKG. :P
