With per-package folder support, top-level parallel build becomes
safe, so we can enclose the .NOTPARALLEL statement in a

-# Parallel execution of this Makefile is disabled because it changes

-# - If a package has an unspecified optional dependency and that

-#   otherwise it isn't (but compilation happily proceeds) so the end
-#   result will differ if the order is swapped due to parallel
-#   building.
-# - Also changing the building order can be a problem if two packages
-#   manipulate the same file in the target directory.
-# Taking into account the above considerations, if you still want to execute
-# this top-level Makefile in parallel comment the ".NOTPARALLEL" line and
-# use the -j<jobs> option when building, e.g:
-#      make -j$((`getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN`+1))
+# Disable top-level parallel build if per-package directories is not
