@vikxin @killerdicke @jordyd Is configure time even a real pain point, or is that one of those instances where we had to switch out the entire init system so servers could display a login prompt in under two seconds from the point the BIOS was finished with the three minute POST, and then load the actual services in the background when the person sitting in the datacenter frantically trying to log in wouldn't be bothered by that anymore?
@GyrosGeier @killerdicke @jordyd Whenever I update my kernel and dkms rebuilds ZFS it spends several minutes running all of the configure tests one at a time and then a few seconds actually building because of all the cores I have. Configure scripts are even worse on Windows where spinning up processes is slower. Autotools is bad and needs to go.
