Description Jeff Johnston 2006-09-05 18:48:01 EDT
When using the Autotools plugin to build a relatively large C project (e.g.
newlib) for the first time, there is a stage between configuration and build
that is called refresh.  This stage takes a very long time to complete and there
is no real feedback on %complete (0 or done).

The cause of the delay should be investigated to see if it can be addressed and
if not, some better form of progress should be displayed.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnston 2007-02-27 18:02:48 EST
Problem is actually caused when populating the Make Target dialog for Build
Special Targets.  The interface provided only allows one Make Target at a time
to be added and it ends up rewriting .cdtproject.  This causes events to be
triggered.  Fix was to added to Autotools to provide new interface. 
Time between configure and build for newlib project goes down from >10 minutes
to about 4 seconds.
