Should I resubmit a proper git patch ?
I have been running with makedepend installed on my 3 systems for 1
month, it has worked very well. I don't think I got ONE weird failure
in the past month, while I used to get more than once per week.
The only thing I need is to sometimes run autogen.sh and/or configure,
when there are some structure changes (e.g. nv30-nv40 merge to nvfx).
AFAIK this is also handled automatically in other projects. But this
is much less annoying, because it fails at build time, instead of
segfaulting at runtime.
Everyone complains about mesa crappy build system so I thought all the
failures I got were expected. Now I see they weren't, just that
makedepend is badly required :)
I am just worried some people might run into the same troubles as me.
But I wonder if there are any since only Dan answered in that thread.
