For MinGW (gcc version 4.6 or later), ensure that the compiler can
be found in the path.
- The build script will use jom if it's found in the path, which means you can
- use -j <n> options on Windows as well. If not, the /MP option is added to the
- compile options of the Microsoft Visual Studio compiler, to use all available
- cores for batch building.
+ To accelerate the bootstrap of qmake with MSVC, it may be useful to pass
+ "-make-tool jom" on the configure command line. If you do not use jom,
+ adding "/MP" to the CL environment variable is a good idea.
More details follow.
