Default makepkg.conf

One of the first things I tend to do with Arch installations is to grab a GUI pacman frontend that is capable of installing packages from the AUR (I usually use pamac).

In order to speed up package builds, I tend to edit /etc/makepkg.conf and add the line MAKEFLAGS="-j$(nproc)".

As far as I remember, the makepkg.conf in Antergos already had this by default.

What are people’s thoughts on making this the default in Endeavour?

Ahha! Is that definitely not going to be part of the next release then? wink wink

We do not want to change system configuration by default. Also as this one is better and makes sense.
