FYI: 'make <module>.allbuild'

 you may or may not know that gbuild supports doing e.g. 'make vcl.all', which 
is supposed to build vcl and also all its dependencies. But just like the 
old 'all' target it has the problem that it also builds tests, which makes it 
rather useless in practice, as it not only causes to run all of that module's 
tests, but it usually also rebuilds many other modules (so 'make vcl.all' 
actually rebuilds Writer too).

 I've pushed a commit that changes that so that 'make <module>.allbuild' only 
builds the module and its dependencies. The old 'make <module>.all' should be 
now preferably written as 'make <module>.allcheck'.
