hello developers (and especially tinderbox maintainers),
on master since a week ago, builds with a native Win32 make should work
and are substantially faster than the old Cygwin make, both for
from-scratch builds and incremental rebuilds.
you can have a faster Windows build too, by using the following file:
and adding a line to autogen.input:
(or just copy it to /opt/lo/bin/make)
note: this only works on master; release branches for 4.3 and older
require Cygwin make.
for details on how to build GNU make from source, and how much speed-up
to expect, see:
