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.
