The description in macports.conf doesn't suggest that the algorithm used is anything else than "min(nCores,nGb)" ...

Besides (think of that what you like), I like to be able to see at a glance what setting I currently run (since one cannot override the variable on the commandline I do tailor it from time to time). And: I use the variable in my qt5-mac-devel port to force parallel building of the bootstrap phase. Is ${} set to the actual number chosen when you set buildjobs=0?
