FYI build time on builders is 1.5 hour without qtwebengine and 7 hours with qtwebengine. I don't know how it looks on arm, but IMHO no-webengine bcond should be enough? -- Jan Rękorajski | PLD/Linux SysAdm | baggins<at>pld-linux.org | http://www.pld-linux.org/ _______________________________________________ pld-devel-en mailing list email@example.com http://lists.pld-linux.org/mailman/listinfo/pld-devel-en
