Bug#383251: g++-4.1: FTBFS for RQuantLib on i386/testing
One interesting little illustration is provided by the CRAN timing
summaries. The master site of CRAN (the CTAN / CPAN equivalent for R) is
hosted on Debian testing. Compile/build/test times are shown at
and RQuantLib is the 2nd most time-consuming packages -- right after RGtk2
which happens to be around thirty (!!) times larger when we compare the
orig.tar.gz [ flawed, as we know that RGtk2 also has a lot of documentation ]
edd@basebud:/var/local/cache/pbuilder/result> ls -lh rgtk2_2.8.5.orig.tar.gz \
-rw-r--r-- 1 edd edd 1.8M Jun 22 19:39 rgtk2_2.8.5.orig.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 edd edd 64K Aug 14 22:39 rquantlib_0.2.4.orig.tar.gz
Still compile/link with g++-4.1 sucks really big time for certain projects.
Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
