Matthew Dillon's latest addition to DragonFlyBSD will help those that build out the full kernel themselves: parallelized kernel module builds. This change for developers allows the the kernel build process to be multiple times faster when doing a full kernel build.

When doing a full build kernel, the building of kernel modules is now parallelized in order to reduce the build times. According to Dillon, the kernel build process can be up to three times faster.

This change to the DragonFlyBSD kernel's make files is already in Git.
