In the PKGBUILD the first "drake" doesn't build everything:
./drake apps:mkvinfo  != ./drake

Oops, sorry, I should have read the PKGBUILD more than once.

I cannot say that I am not agree :-)


Oh, I thought you were talking about the multithreading. I guess that trick
can be used to do things the other way around and build only mkvtoolnix-gui
in the second build folder. I'll have a look tomorrow and remove
mkvinfo-gui, I guess most people will agree that it's unnecessary to
package it.
