 Replying to [comment:5 arlolra]:
 > > 4) Is there really no way to avoid cluttering the disk with all that
 stuff to just build the webrtc part? Think about us builders who usually
 have a dev, hardened, alpha and stable tor-browser-bundle tree to get
 releases faster out.
 > Yeah, webrtc is a beast to build.  In the short term, this ticket is
 only about the alpha channel.  In the long term, switching to rbm will
 ameliorate the issue, in that it makes better use of reusable components.
 > But, your objection is noted and we'll try and think of how to improve
 the situation.

 FWIW: it is not an objection in the sense that a thing needs to get fixed
 to get the patch merged. I am just annoyed that this thing causes quite a
 big part of my hard disk filled with crap I don't want (and IMO should not
 be needed in an ideal world) :) `rbm` not really mitigates this concern
 (although, sure, I don't have to check out all of this four times).
