| scripts and similar mechanisms.)

Fine. I just want the build to go faster.  Every time I do a 'make test' I
have to wait for type-reflector to do it's thing.

| I don't fully understand one of your statements, when you say: "Should
| the third attempt not build a second time if it succeeded the first
| time?"
| If I understand you correctly, then you're asking for the current
| behavior.  If it builds console-only output the first time, and then you
| rebuild (without an intervening clean), then it shouldn't be rebuilt.
| (Unless the type-reflector source has been updated in CVS, which would
| cause a full rebuild of type-reflector, resulting in three compiles,
| assuming the build machine hasn't changed.)

It always tries three times, and the first two fail (as they should) and the
third re-compiles everything, even though no sources have changed each time
I do a 'make'.
