isolating builds within a module

hi all..

one regret i'm having with regards to putting libplasma in kdelibs is that now 
building it takes forever as cmake checks each and every lib in kdelibs before 

this hand holding wastes signficant amounts of time for those of us working on 
libs with dependencies on other parts of kdelibs. i imagine the case must be 
similar for, e.g., koffice and what not

do the build gurus have any suggestions for how to make it possible to not 
check the other lib dependencies within the same module every single time? or 
even at all unless you build from the top level directory?

if i build from inside of kdelibs/plasma, i really don't want (nor need) to 
check the build of core, ui, kio, solid, knewstuff and kfile.
