# Where are the build settings in Homebrew?

I'm looking for a a settings file in Homebrew for OS X that controls the build settings, similar to make.conf in Gentoo.

I want to tweak the make -j parameter to use more cores of my machine. The problem is, I can't find anything useful related to brew in /usr/local/etc. Is there a simple answer to this?

Each brew has its own recipe for making. These are usually ruby files, IIRC. You can certainly customize them, but there are no system wide homewbrew settings that I know of. –  jakev Oct 26 '12 at 17:17
