make args in portinstall breaks config dialogs


I wondoer if somebody is facing the same problem I am having now.

When installing a port, by passing make the argument "-j 2" (it could be 2 or any other number), the ncurses Dialog which let you choose some settings, breaks... I mean, they are shown incorrectly (wrong chars) and keyborard input (such as arrow keys) is printed on the screen as some funky chars instead of move throught the options.

I found to fix it by passing together "-B -j 2" to make, but this way (as I read in `man make`) the -j functionality is disabled by the presence of -B.

Somebody else???

How do you set the -j flag for all your ports??

Thanks a lot.
