three possibilities.... first, the whole point of using 'make'
is that you don't have to do a full build except the first time.
unfortunately you are working on the makefiles which is a very
rare situation. i know it is painful (from experience) but it
would be useless to optimize build times since almost no-one
else will have the problem.

second, do machine-parallel builds. fix a problem on one machine
and while it builds, move to the next machine.

third, have the build check for obj/sys/bin/lisp and if it exists
skip the lisp build step (unless you are hacking that makefile).
