Smile bowtie2-build , How to use more CPU cores

When running "bowtie2-build" to build the index files it uses only one core. Is there any way to add option in order to use all 4 cores? Very similar to the "-p 4" option when later aligning the reads to the reference genome .

If you are using one of the standard genomes download prebuilt indexes from bowtie site or iGenomes.
