How to add Percent Complete to a make process?
 
Hi all,

Most of FLOSS projects has a lot of code to compile, and a big make process.

On my new PC i need a half hour to compile Inkscape, and on my old laptop i need something near to 2 hours.

There is a way to put a percentage of the work done in the makefile?
(Always there are a hard and dirty way... there is a good, beauty, common way?)

There is no common way? Some idea for a beauty (in code) way?

Thanks!

If you study the purpose and behavior of make, you will understand why your request is impractical to implement.
