i'm not impressed ... the debian build does everything four times, so
you're not even 2.5 times as fast. :-P

actually _compiling_ this code takes long, as a) g++ is slower than gcc
and b) it's such a lot of (included) code.

moc takes almost no time. compiling the generated mocs does (they are
tiny, but are compiled separately and therefore need to compile all
these included headers again). kde includes the mocs into the "real" c++
files, so they don't contribute much to compilation time.
