Only if you're trying to spend more effort figuring out what you don't
need to re-compile and re-link than it would take to just rebuild
everything. Even on a slow machine such an effort is a total waste of
time if it's done by a human.

If you'd just recompiled and relinked them all it would have been much
easier too! ;-)
