About lock on simultaneous port

I'm not patient enough to wait port to finish sometime, especially
when I need to install an additional package when a port process is
already running. Therefore, I'd like to run more than one port process
simultaneously. But currently, it doesn't allow me to do so. I'm
wondering if it is possible to make the lock more granular so that I
can run multiple port processes.

$sudo port install pdftk
