When apt-get source'ing .. can I pass make flags?

Specifically, I'd like to compile with "-j5".

After I
apt-get source -t testing lighttpd
what do I have to edit to apply additional make gflags?

Apt-build uses /etc/apt/apt-build.conf as its configuration file. That has an option (blank by default) for make_options = " ". I think that you would want to put it there, though I admit, I'm not 100% sure. The other thought is to enter export CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=5 before you enter the apt-build command. That should make the change, but only for the duration that you have that shell window open, I think.

Something like this perhaps: apt-get source -t testing lighttpd && cd light* && dpkg-buildpackage -j5
