This package does not compile the Thrift compiler by default. Nor does it compile the thriftz and thrifnb libraries. It just builds the basic thrift library, without SSL support. To compile the Thrift compiler, you must pass in custom CMake arguments in your toolchain, namely BUILD_COMPILER=ON. Similarly, to build thriftz, pass WITH_ZLIB=ON. To build thriftnb, pass WITH_LIBEVENT=ON. To compile with SSL support, pass WITH_OPENSSL=ON.
