Hey guys long time no see.. Just last week I replaced my ancient dinosaur dual G4 with a dual core G5 to keep my music up and running..

Just getting ready to build a new SDLMAME 142u2 (last one I have was 0.139 and it doesnt work on my G5 after copying over) and have a question about the cpu types..

Now I know it will correctly detect PPC and whatnot, but since my machine is a dual-core and not a regular old dual cpu Mac like before can I (or do I even need to) use the 'make -j3' command or is this an Intel only switch??
