We would like to compile Apache Impala on an Amazon Linux EC2 instance so that it can be included in an AWS Lambda deployment. Unfortunately, Lambda has a hard cap of 50MB (compressed) and Impala's build footprint is somewhat larger.
So, we're hiring a C++ expert to reduce the size of the build footprint.

Goal is shipping a sufficiently small build by end of year.
