Is it possible to build samba without waf?
It has slowed down my local samba builds by a factor of 5-10x -- it
seems to lack
any parallelism, and on a 12 core machine, that really sucks.
When going through it's tests, it's noticeably slower than the configure
tests that do the same...
But then the build/make parts all go by like molasses...
What is wrong with standard make tools that proprietary - going back a
or two, stuff had to be used?
What did it solve that wasn't solvable in a standard make?
Maybe waf can be configured to create a standard makefile to handle
the more complex configuration parts, and then let make do what it does
