just out of interest, do you run gtk-doc with address sanitizer
(libasan) preloaded? I just faced myself, when running gtk-doc with
ASAN preloaded, that it takes ages to finish, but without it the same
project finished within minutes (evolution-data-server speaking, size
of its gtk-doc is comparable to gtk+, I believe).
Thanks for the hint, but I don't have libasan installed. So it must be
something else. I thought everybody had the same slowness problem with
gtk-doc. I have an Intel core i5, so there is a problem if it takes
several hours to build the GTK+ docs. I can try with
The slowness is due to the xslt processor. libxslt is still single
threaded, slow as hell and mostly in maintenance mode. I am now aware of
a better xslt processor. The only sane way from my POV would be to ditch
docbook and migrate full to markdown. I'd love to do this in gtk-doc -
what we need is a complete migration plan and some help writing the
code. Once we have a plan we could probably write most of the code
during some hackfest.
