-j2 default and sudo usage

Couple of questions:
Just installed the svn macports, and ports seem to build with -j2 now
by default. Is this a recent change, since loads of OCaml ports break
with a parallel build. Should I go around setting each individual
port to have a -j1 in the Portfile, or is there some other way to
force a non-parallel build with a variable?
Also, how do folks typically do non-root builds to ensure stuff isn't
sneaking out of the fakeroot? I've chowned a bunch of directories to
my user, and manually invoking fakeroot works; it would be nice if
sudo were automatically called when required (e.g. for install). Is
there a knob for this, or do you generally just invoke targets
manually and add sudo when required?
