Re: builddir != srcdir in jhbuild breaks my workflow

To compile only what I need:

To re-build only a certain *.c file, to see if there are any warnings:
[jhbuild] $ touch file.c
[jhbuild] $ make

If you use:

  jhbuild make

instead of entering inside a shell, jhbuild would pick up the changes
and build in the build directory.

No, jhbuild make:
- is longer to type (I need to type jhbuild shell only once);
- compiles the whole module, and installs it (I prefer to run make
  install separately, only when needed).

Btw I've filed a bug (with patches) for updating the buildroot docs:
