You can also manually change it for a single install, for example by using build.jobs. Such as:
sudo port install port_whatever_name build.jobs=4
and then, for that specific install it will attempt to use 4 cores. This can be handy to reduce the number of cores used, from the default, so that you can do other things on the machine while building.
