     86=== Compilation issues ===
     87
     88If you have strange issues while compiling you can try the following (in no particular order):
     89
     90 * If you are using `ccache`, clean it:
     91{{{
     92#!sh
     93$ ccache -C
     94}}}
     95
     96 * If you may be using the `gold` compiler, change `ld` in order to use `ld.bfd` instead of `ld.gold`. Instructions:
     97   * Configure `update-alternatives`:
     98{{{
     99#!sh
     100$ update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/ld" "ld" "/usr/bin/ld.gold" 20
     101$ update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/ld" "ld" "/usr/bin/ld.bfd" 10
     102}}}
     103   - Then choose the preferred one with the following command:
     104{{{
     105#!sh
     106$ update-alternatives --config ld
     107}}}
     108
     109 * Use a `jhbuild` shell and compile with `-j1`. Example with problems compiling `cairo`:
     110{{{
     111#!sh
     112$ Tools/jhbuild/jhbuild-wrapper --gtk shell
     113$ cd WebKitBuild/Dependencies/Source/cairo-1.12.8/
     114$ ../../Root/bin/make -j1
     115$ ../../Root/bin/make install
     116}}}
     117
     118That instructions assume that the configure step was successful in the first place. If you need to repeat all the module build, it's better to do it directly using jhbuild. Never invoke `./configure` manually without parameters if you don't know what you're doing:
     119
     120{{{
     121#!sh
     122$ Tools/jhbuild/jhbuild-wrapper --gtk buildone -f cairo
     123}}}
