> Honestly, the rebuild process takes me about 4 hours, I usually let it run at night and only after widespread changes (more than 40 files are currently involved, with many header files) and almost all because I have the odd feeling that, in the past, after some modification on the same set of files the "build [DEP]" phase sometimes involved different modules besides the "expected" ones. If you confirm that this is excessive then I will happily avoid the rebuild and just perform make check.

When you just modify .hxx/.cxx files (rather than doing odd changes to 
.mk files, say), then our dependency tracking should really be good 
enough to do all required rebuilds without a need to "make clean" first.
