P4DTI issue job001701

TitleP4DTI build script too slow
Assigned userNick Barnes
DescriptionThe build script takes ages, especially on Windows, especially when the build machine is either slow (e.g. a VM) or remote from the Ravenbrook perforce server. It checks out the whole version source three times (including once just to build the 'manuals' target). It would be much better to check out the source tree once and then copy it locally.
AnalysisFix the multiple checkouts, and also think about other ways to make it go faster.
