Encountered another very nice command like that recently when
compiling the kernel:

time make -j `getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN` deb-pkg

Grabs the number of threads (not cores) to feed to the "-j" parameter.

You can always do that kind of text wrangling with Linux/Unix
commands, but it's nice when it's as elegantly simple as these two.
