[Bug gdb/22617] New: RFE: parallelize ./configure

            Bug ID: 22617
           Summary: RFE: parallelize ./configure
           Product: gdb
           Version: HEAD
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gdb
          Assignee: unassigned at sourceware dot org
          Reporter: jreiser at BitWagon dot com
  Target Milestone: ---

Request For Enhancement ("RFE"): Please parallelize the "checking for ..." and
"checking whether ..." pieces of running ./configure for gdb.  There are
hundreds of them, they are all independent, yet they run serially in separate
processes.  Auto-parallelizing these tests, or obeying a "-jN" command-line
argument like 'make', would save minutes of developer time.

--- Comment #1 from Sergio Durigan Junior <sergiodj at redhat dot com> ---
Sorry, but this bug should be filed against autotools, and not GDB.  Running
"configure" in parallel is not supported by autotools, and I don't know any
project that implements this by themselves.  GDB's configure uses whatever it
can to speed things up (e.g., cache), so anything else should be implemented by
autotools IMO.  Closing as WONTFIX.
