As I said in the other, "Build Selection" will build all the items
listed in the lower list in the Projects view. You can add to/remove
from that list using the +/- buttons right above it.

What I forgot to mention there: You can also leave the list empty, in
that case the selection will be whatever is selected inside the
projects view.

Note though that wether or not building individual files depends on
the buildsystem, for cmake it should work as long as our cmake plugin
can figure out the right subdirectory and a make foo.o in that
directory actually works. I don't think any of the other project
builders supports building individual files.
