Description Rodrigo Kumpera 2013-08-16 15:12:35 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1)build monodroid;
2)Do nothing
3)make on monodroid

A metric ton of stuff will be rebuild.

NOTHING should be rebuild on a built and unmodified tree.
Comment 1 Rodrigo Kumpera 2013-08-16 15:19:43 UTC
an unmodified tree should not take more than a few seconds to run make from the top level.

cd monodroid; time make
real	0m52.270s
