Comment 1 Ulrich Müller 2020-09-27 11:25:19 UTC
Only 6 packages (and no eclass) in the tree are passing --enable-fast-install to econf. This doesn't look like a feature that would merit support in the package manager itself.
Comment 2 Ulrich Müller 2020-09-27 13:08:16 UTC
I just see that the Council has already rejected this feature: https://projects.gentoo.org/council/meeting-logs/20090423-summary.txt - New econf options, '--disable-dependency-tracking'/'--enable-fast-install' The addition of '--enable-fast-install' was opposed because it is already a libtool default and as such is useless. No arguments were made against '--disable-dependency-tracking'. Conclusion: '--disable-dependency-tracking' was voted in, while '--enable-fast-install' was voted out.

> [...] it is already a libtool default and as such is useless Sounds like we can close the bug then.
