[DEPENDS] Make the boost package build parallel

Authored by Fabien on Jan 8 2020, 16:05.



The b2 boost build program runs with the available number of cores by
default (see the -j option
Passing it JOBS allow for the user to limit the number of core to be used if he wants to.

I didn't change the install -j4 parameter since I don't know where it
comes from, and I doubt it would make any difference since this step
will mostly copy files.

Test Plan
cd depends

Why not pass the JOBS variable explicitly? If the person who want to run that script want a specific number of jobs, I think we should respect that and the default should work just fine.
