  • $\begingroup$ @maddin45 I looked for build options in the about box. $\endgroup$ – user877329 May 4 '14 at 12:44

In the Info Editor go to Help and choose System Info. Open the internal text editor and select the created file: system-info.txt. Under build flags look for -fopenmp.

Note that the build flags depend on your system. For gcc -fopenmp is needed to compile with openmp support.

Probably the easiest way is to use the Python console and enter getattr(bpy.app.build_options, 'openmp')
