My guess is that dcc32 works as an integrated make program + compiler and thus 
doesn't start external processes for each file.
Or, if it starts an external process then it can use some (hidden) temporary 
file with pre-scanned info of the project. So the compiler would only open one 
"info" file instead of scanning the whole search paths.

I used the IDE always when working with Delphi and don't really know dcc32. 
Guessing only.
