Looks like we do support distcc compilation, not sure how it works with B2G; I'll play with that on my own time.

To speed things up though, I did mess with the j option for make and ac_add_options –disable-tests ; I kept the symbols in the event that I crash and need to try taking a look at the crash.

Also to note, I think it’s been patched so you can’t just short cut link the gecko any more for the ./repo sync… ./repo sync will overwrite what you have if you have a short link.  The proper way would probably be to override the variables.   See : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Customization_with_the_.userconfig_file

I’ll have to mess with that when I have more time.

[UPDATE: http://blog.linuxprogrammer.org/My%20B2G%20.Userconfig.html  Dave Huseby already blogged about it and has a working .userconfig ]
