bulk88's patch in [perl #123867] adds support for building perl in parallel on Win32 using dmake's -P option. I've spent some time trying to improve it, but ended up running into limitations in dmake, in particular it seems to call child makefiles with -S preventing any parallel builds in the child.

If a GNU make makefile is added [perl #123440] in 5.23 this may provide a better base for parallel builds, though the current version referenced only builds using GCC.
