Also, if I may add, the installation procedure itself is somewhat not
optimal. It's frequent to change a line of code and want to see how it
works. Then makefile installs all docs, sometimes rebuilds them, docdemos
and various stuff again, while actually only the compiler proper has
Obviously, a change to Makefiles would be required, to process the build
work in higher resolution (don't look at me). I know Frank is busy with
more important things, but it could be added to TODO list at least ...
OTOH and IMHO, it could pay out in faster development
change-save-compile-test cycle. For compiler developers, I mean. End users
