No; when the -j flag is turned on it uses an abbreviated output format
that just tells you *what* it is doing (downloading XYZ package,
configuring foo, building baz...) but not the details, with the
details going to a separate log file for each package. There may soon
also be a way to use it with hydra-print which could be nice.

Yes, edit your ~/.cabal/config and add/uncomment the line
