Description Jeff Johnston 2007-01-26 20:43:44 UTC
This bug entails a couple of build problems with Autotools.  Sometimes, the
build will run and then start again.  Other times, a build will be issued and
Autotools will do a make clean all which causes unnecessary churn.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnston 2007-01-26 21:15:26 UTC
A number of problems existed.  The ManagedBuild project calls clean() when doing
a full build and this attempts to remove the build directory.  Thankfully, the
ManagedMake project assumes the build directory is named the same as the
configuration which is rarely true.  The clean call is unnecessary and has been
disabled in this circumstance.  Fixes have been made so a UI clean will actually
invoke make clean rather than attempt to delete the directory.
