I sometimes miss the days when everything was written in C or perl and built with autotools, at least I knew how to get stuff working. Now I spend far too much time fighting the different language build systems.

Want to give a try, but installs valac as /usr/bin/valac-0.36 and I've no clue how to proceed. Should I try to convince Mason to use that binary? But how? Am I supposed to create a 'valac' symlink instead? But there's no 'eselect vala', so probably not. :blobeyes:


Of course I'm being a hypocrite here; I've published projects in Haskell, Ocaml, Elm, Go, Perl and currently working on some in Rust. All with their own build system.
