I don't know if you have followed the discussion, but I recently sent a
new iteration of the per-package folder series , which allows to
support top-level parallel build.
Currently the Meson integration in Buildroot doesn't work with this
per-package folder stuff.
The initial issue is that:
But of course, behind that, there's a bigger issue: this
cross-compilation.conf hardcodes the compiler path, library path, etc.
However, with per-package folders, we really need to use the compiler
and libraries from the per-package folder of the current package.
To achieve this, we will need to generate a per-package
cross-compilation.conf, which is something Peter was already proposing
in http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/946599/. However, compared to this
patch, we would need:
(1) Replacing not only the CFLAGS, but also the compiler/library paths.
(2) Producing a final cross-compilation.conf, which can be used by
people using the toolchain outside of Buildroot.
I am sending this e-mail to see if you are willing/available to help on
this, or if you would like me to take over this work and propose a
Thanks a lot!
