The problem with crunchgen ... : : I would argue "the problem with make"... ;-) I think it's pretty : clear that : : a b c: foo : buildabc : : does not require that 'buildabc' be run three times. Make : should be able to note that 'buildabc' was already spawned : for 'a' and just add 'b' and 'c' to the wait list for : that operation, rather than running additional copies.
That's not how make works. a b c: foo buildabc is the same as: a: foo buildabc b: foo buildabc c: foo buildabc _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
