I forgot one more issue with legacy buiilds:

$ make -s -f Makefile.legacy clean
$ make -j 2 -s -f Makefile.legacy linux-x86-64-native
make[1]: warning: jobserver unavailable: using -j1.  Add '+' to parent
make rule.

$ make -s -f Makefile.legacy linux-x86-64-native
(without -j results in unlimited number of processes started by make.

So, some make magic is required to correctly pass a -j value, and allow
build without -j.
(An easy fix would just drop the current attempt of passing on the -j
value to the subprocesses, limiting make to a single process...)
