Brilliant! That's something one can do easily in the confi-
guration script: just set sip's '-c' option to a temporary
directory and then, after sip has been run, copy only those
files that are different (except for the "Generated by SIP"
line which has always a different date) over to the direc-
tory where they're supposed to end up in for compilation;-)

               Thanks a lot and best regards, Jens
