           Summary: [GTK] autotools build is slow
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: Gtk
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk

The autotools build system is slower than the qmake system it replaces.

I've looked into avoiding libtools, and using precompiled headers so far but no
timings yet.

Apparently the current system is slow even with ccache which suggests time is
being spend doing things other than compiling.
