Yes, in fact in the default configuration of my solution, both "INSTALL"
and "modularize" projects aren't checked for their building, but a the
end of my first building all my headers are erased... what I'm making a
mistake in?

I'm not sure what target you are building... the 'install' target
requires 'modularize' and this is a one-way process, the headers will be

modularized such that rebuilds aren't possible. The default target
doesn't rearrange any headers, and rebuilds work fine.
