Summary 0001659: make's -j option missing from synopsis
Description The "-j" option is described in the "OPTIONS" section of the page but absent from the "SYNOPSIS" section.
Desired Action Change the synopsis to include the option.

It appears the POSIX house style is to set brackets denoting optional arguments in bold.

I therefore suggest adding

.BR [ \-j\ \c
.IB maxjobs ]

assuming your sources are using man(7).
Tags No tags attached.

Somehow we missed the SYNOPSIS change in the resolution of bug 0001436.

The sources don't use man(7) but I'm happy with a straight accept as it's clear what's needed.
