Doing parallel and caching builds in a test release


It is possible to spead up the building and re-building of your test release using SRT's parallel build mechanism, potentially in conjunction with the distributed compiler wrapper distcc and/or ccache. See this page's introduction for a brief description of what distcc and ccache does.


Your environment needs to be set up as described here.


When compiling you must tell SRT to use distcc and/or ccache instead of directly calling the compilers. To do so one types make like:
    make SRT_QUAL=distcc,ccache <normal-make-target>
The SRT_QUAL can be set with either "distcc" or "ccache" or both in any order.
