gnu make port and the build.pl script

Peter Kovacs
Hello,

will we get rid of the build.pl script once the gnu make port is over?

just asking, because I then I dont start debugging the script. I have
realy strange issues.

I run into an compile error with build --all.

Then I switch into the module start again build --all and the module
builds and delivers flawlessly.

It is very strange behaviour.

Included that the Script produces different results at each run, does
not give me confidence.

I would very much decomission this perl build tool all together.


All the best
Peter

Yes, sadly this is well known, and getting rid of build.pl is the long term
plan:

Which module breaks for you?
