Default Rebuilding a package with debug symbols and no optimization in a _parallel_ fashion?

Package building is an inherently serial process, so you would not be
able to benefit from any parallelization of that part.

Compiling the application, you can pass the -j flag to make, which
normally is called in debian/rules, so you'd have to edit that file.
That will in theory run as many parallel processes as you want (I never
use more than 5).

The buildd environment might not like it though.
