I'm unable to even guess how many people will find this useful.

The script never sets nproc. So I guess this is a bare `make -j'.
When I type that on my (quite beefy) workstation I get eleventy xillion
processes and the machine locks up. Can't even wiggle the mouse.
After a 20 minute nap (thanks!) it was still comatose so I hit the big

So you might want to take an educated guess from /proc/cpuinfo here.
