this is a follow-up to
I have checked again yesterday, and the VS2019 build was still almost 10 minutes slower than VS2017:
this is despite the fact that the pacman update finishes and the actual build started at 08:51 mark for VS2017 and at 02:23 mark for VS2019. All else being equal, VS2019 should have been about six and a half minutes faster, not 8 minutes slower.
As mentioned in the original issue, the upstream project (startaq/mame) semi-regularly misses the 60 minutes mark. If builds on both VS versions were equal, time saved by smaller MSYS update could just be enough to make the cutoff reliably.
