[manjaro] speed up the compilation of AUR packages

Problem
When compiling AUR packages, only one core is used. How to use more cores and speed up the compilation?

Solution
I found this tip here.

Edit the file “/etc/makepkg.conf” and modify this line:

MAKEFLAGS="-j$(nproc)"

It will use all your cores. Or, you can specify how many cores to use:

MAKEFLAGS="-j2"

Now two cores will be used for the compilation.
