I will try to throw something together later this week.  However, the
short answer is that only AutoBuild and a handful of smaller programs
(find_tls_groups, and the structure comparison GUI) have parameters to
make them run in parallel.  phenix.refine and Phaser can be
parallelized at a very low level by compiling with OpenMP support, but
this requires building Phenix from source, and is incompatible with
the GUI.
