That's the reason that Matt introduced the 'quickworld' target.
It only compiles the code which has changed since the last build,
so it skips not only gcc3 but gcc2 and the rest of the toolchain
as well.

One hint:  if 'quickworld' fails to compile then the next thing
to try is a full buildworld -- but that rarely happens.
