In continuous integration systems, fast failure without recovery is a highly
desirable behavior. As such, I would like to see GNU Make completely abort
fast at the first failure.
During automated parallel builds with make -j <N>, make attemps to build as
much as it possibly can, and even when some targets fail, GNU Make continues.
This is the exact opposite of a fast failure.
In continuous integration systems, there is no value in doing incremental
builds: each new build starts from scratch. This ensures stability and
A patch was proposed in 2009
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-make/2009-01/msg00035.html, I wuold like
to see this integrated in GNU Make.
There is some background reading material:
