Then I'll close this and open a new Task for the
more general advanced helper program configuration,
hoping that some good soul will someday implement it
(could even be me).

Sorry, but I can not program :(. It was just an idea. If you could implement it...

But I'm ready to test any patch. Thanks.

Even better would be to make helper programs completely
configurable using the preferences.

Currently helper programs are detected when libsrcinst is installed, and the user is stuck with them (and cannot provide additional options).

Those values could instead be used as defaults, but with the additional possibility of changing them using the preferences menu in sourceinstall-gtk, or directly changing the preferences file/passing them on the command line in sourceinstall.

Care to give it a shot working on a patch?

I'd like to be able to pass -j2 parameter to make since I have a dual core CPU, SMP system. I think it would be easy to implement this feature.

Thank you!
