I am not sure what the goal of this patch is, reducing the build times when you are only working in evas can also be achieved with only building evas using ninja src/lib/evas_goal/ in-tree running of not rebuild binaries should still just continue to work, as long as no internal APIs are changed. Additionally, as long as you do not touch any .eo / .h file, elementary should not be forced to be rebuild...


  • Build break in documentation creation.
  • efl-ui.pc is also still installed, even if there is no library like this.
  • The CMakeConfig files are also still installed.
  • Build break in the C# bindings

This also opens up a whole new set of problems, how do we garantee that noone builds a efl release without elm? Elm is a part of EFL! if there is a configure option, someone will use it. Who will maintain this option, and guarantee that it will not break in future ?

@smohanty any special purpose for this? efl is going to integrate one unified set.
