We might want to not top post so much.
1) Most people will not be editing bitmaps_png/CMakeLists.txt, and
2) most should have MAINTAIN_PNGS OFF. (I just changed mine to OFF.)
And I did a bzr revert bitmaps_png after it built all the bitmaps again. I am
happy using someone else's bitmaps (*.cpp) files.
Also, you may use the
$ make -j 4
to improve build speed if you have more than one CPU core. The number after the
-j is not that important, should be 3-5 typically.
I have not seen a wide variance between those values, other than if I make it
too high, then my computer becomes sluggish for other things during the build.
