You don't need to do anything except the -j N

scons will gather all the information as before and compute the work to
be done, and when it's time to do builds the job dispatcher will launch
threads up to the number you specified to do those. you won't get an
N-times speedup; sometimes something has to wait for something else
before it can be launched.
