Out of 130+ packages I maintain, only 3 of them fail to build with
smp_mflags.

That's roughly 2%. IMHO, the guidelines should be for the most common
cases.

If smp_mflags doesn't work with your package, no sweat, take it out and
document it. But it should be the default, and all packages should try
to use it whenever possible.
