Please could you explain why this USE flag was removed ?
People who have already QtWebkit on their system will now have to emerge QtWebEngine which takes a LOT of compile time.
It is sad that kmymoney use that huge kit for only rendering the home page view and printing functions if I am right ?
I know the line below shows an old version but as example without the jumbo-build which was also removed recently from qtwebengine ebuild you can see the difference between compile time of theses packages :
dev-qt/qtwebkit-5.212.0_pre20200309-r1: 2 hours, 47 minutes, 27 seconds average for 3 merges
dev-qt/qtwebengine-5.14.1: 15 hours, 20 minutes, 50 seconds average for 1 merge
Thanks in advance,
This is because qtwebkit is being removed from the tree as it is no longer supported upstream more-or-less: bug 684580.
Answer to $summary is *yes*, there is nothing we can do about it.
That said, 15 hours is way overboard and hints at system resources exhaustion - look into reducing MAKEOPTS value for the package. On my system qtwebengine[-jumbo-build] was about 3.5x build time of qtwebkit.
