Umm.. the first -P6 for build means build 6 directories found in
*/prj/build.lst in parallel, the second -P6 instructs dmake to spawn
6 processes for targets found in each, so already
build -P6 -- -P6
could create up to 36 processes, if for each directory triggered by
build there are at least 6 independent targets.

Sure that repeating  -- -P6  has any effect? Never tried that. If so,
that would probably add to the 36 ...

With a quad core I'm using  build -P3 -- -P2  in the background to keep
my machine responsive for other tasks, or  build -P4 -- -P3  for a bit
heavier load.
