[fpc-devel] compiling fpc, but without examples

I am trying to cut down the time it takes to recompile fpc.

Is there a way to pass any thing to make, to tell it to skip building 
the examples. I know COPYTREE to skip installing them, but I don't even 
want to build them (after all, I am not using them). something like 
"make all SKIP_EXAMPLES=1"

Also, all I need is the compiler, the rtl and the packages (maybe 
sometimes some of the utils, but not after every SVN update). IF I am 
right I can do:
  make.exe  rtl packages  compiler
instead of "make all" ?
