@colin-guyon I was wondering whether FASTbuild generator would work for Android targeting. I ran into a problem that I'm not sure how to approach. During generation phase cmake does a few try_compile calls and I get a failure like: cmake\debug\x86-e\CMakeFiles\CMakeTmp\fbuild.bff(209,2): FASTBuild Error #1004 - Alias() - Empty string not allowed for property 'Targets'.
Alias('cmTC_d99c4-PreBuild-Debug')
^
--here
When I look at that fbuild.bff I do see an Alias with empty .Targets block. Looks like this:
Alias('cmTC_72752-PreBuild-Debug')
{
    .Targets = 
    {
    }
}
I'd be happy to debug and contribute a PR if possible but I'm not sure what this Alias is trying to do so I'm not sure what to look for. Any help would be appreciated
I can provide a lot more information about how things are set up but I don't want to spam until I know what you need
