Addressing this: >> I understand the reasoning behind it Sergey, but if new
people want to build Blender they should get something which is approaching
a feature complete build, otherwise what is the point of using a Dev build.

Why would motion tracker developer want to deal with LLVM? Why new modifier
guy would want to deal with Boost? Why compositor or dependency graph guys
need to worry about any of external dependencies? This could be continued..

For sure at some point developer would need to be able to compile
feature-complete blender, but forcing him to solve all the dependencies
from the very beginning is really scary for new developers.

With best regards, Sergey Sharybin
