build-webkit rebuilds the whole webkit when nothing has changed

1. Tools/Scripts/build-webkit --debug
2. Observe WebKit is being built, and it will succeed
3. Tools/Scripts/build-webkit --debug
4. Observe WebKit is being re-built, even though nothing has changed

build-webkit --use-workspace works correctly, it does not rebuild if already built.

Can this be duped to bug 241298?
Comment 3 Alexey Proskuryakov 2022-06-13 12:26:00 PDT
I understand that there is some underlying issue that could potentially be fixed to make no-workspace builds more incremental again, but not sure if that's something to dedicate time to at this point.
