Description Nico Nelson 2012-10-08 18:17:56 UTC
there should be an option to --disable-tests

so one can work around blocker bugs like https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55771

and save a lot of time when compiling on slow or even emulated cpu's where the build of the tests alone can take hours

Thanks to Nico, I found: http://git.gnome.org/browse/glib/commit/?id=f084b603771f78126bc0b07229a1574b76e776bb

That looks relatively easy. However, according to the automake docs, DIST_SUBDIRS shouldn't be needed to be set:
