Less than 5 s would be nice.

We've got a couple of main targets with more than 200 source files and a few
others with less than 50.

That's what I thought.

Right. The problem is that we must create a couple of DLLs based on
hundereds of source files.
If it were possible, I could create smaller static libs and then link them
together to create the large DLLs. However, I don't think this is possible,
at least in Windows, due to having to explicitly export the symbols.

Thanks for your help,
