Re: download dependencies in background while building

  I was told today: It's a shame it doesn't download dependancies in the 
  background while building.

This doesn't make sense to me; pkgsrc insists on dependencies being
built before continuing.  So we'd need to have dependencies be built in
parallel, or maybe something like

make fetch-list|sh &
when building, check if fetch is pending and wait for it

Is that what you mean?

I agree that this seems tricky.
