2.11.2 will end up in pkg-evolution's svn for sure.

I don't think you get around the initial build; you can feature strip it to reduce the time. Once you've built it. make will figure out what has to be rebuilt. A make && make install when I edit files in only one directory takes about 5 seconds on my system.. > Thanks for packing evo, and for making the -dbg files available. You're welcome. Don't hesitate with questions on how you can use packages or package scripts in your development setup..
