I actually like the build/dependency logic proposed. But I don't like
the fact people are skipping make check. We are really trying to keep
make check clean, so that any failure really means something is wrong
either with elfutils itself or the toolchain used. Such issues really
should be reported and fixed whenever possible.
Does gentoo keep build logs, do they include the make check output?
If not, what is the reason for wanting to skip make check?
