Oh, I'm not saying such at thing, it is of course possible :-)

Just make dev-install is not working there; instead you need to create
an install set, and use that; and in case of changes, copy the files
around.  The dev-install that is possible on Linux makes the development
more convenient by using links to the build tree, so every time you
compile in the build tree, the dev-install'd tree immediately uses the
newly built stuff.
