hello all

I'm trying to compile emacs26.1 on my ubuntu18.04
the configuration stage works well
I've just got a warning about GTK+ and a possible crash
in case of many instances
The make phase stalls with this message:


The default build has too many dependencies.  If you want to get
something compiled without much hassle just disable dependencies in
the build.

It looks like you are using libcairo, which is experimental.
What options are you using for ./configure?

Look at ./configure --help

./configure --help | grep -i cairo
   --with-cairo            compile with Cairo drawing (experimental)
                   C compiler flags for CAIRO, overriding pkg-config
                     CAIRO_LIBS  linker flags for CAIRO, overriding pkg-config

It appears that cairo is not used by default with what I've got.

Also try a lighter toolkit.

--with-x-toolkit=KIT (KIT one of: yes or gtk, gtk2, gtk3, lucid or athena, 
motif, no)

that did the trick! I've compiled with gtk3 and it worked.

many thanks
