I think DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS is used by dpkg-buildpackage, not by all the
debhelper scripts. How would you expect them to make use of it?
Do you have a package build where the dh_* scripts themselves are taking
so long, and seem to be CPU-bound, that you need them to parallelize
I doubt dh_* scripts are going to be doing things in parallel
themselves, it is usually only when they call dpkg-buildpackage to do
the "real" build work than you'd really need/want paralellism to happen
Note: This does not imply that I qualify as a "mentor" :)
