Typical Travis builds of Audacity take about 14mins.
./configure takes 57s elapsed
make then takes 10m elapsed
Travis is now using make with -j2 which is giving a time saving of about 3 mins. This is a much smaller benefit than on a typical stand alone machine. Are there ways that we can cut down the build times on Travis further? The main purpose of the Travis builds is as a sanity test that we have not broken the build.
