Do they use recursive Makefiles? With Quadra, a not-so-big project,
using non-recursive Makefiles cut the compile time in half easily. On an
even bigger project (particularly if you have many subdirectories), the
payoff should be even worthier (it make 5 minutes into a bit over 2
minutes for me, if it turns 60 minutes into 25-30 minutes, pretty
interesting pay off).
