Im working on a large (3 million+ lines) project, which we compile
under MS VC++. The whole compilation and link takes around 2 hours,
and is made up of around 80 or so sub projects (all separate

Are there any utilities available that will automatically break down
this compilation process and spread it out over several different
machines, so we can compile in parallel - not just split up the
different sub projects, but in a couple of cases, we would like to
break down the make across several machines as some individual
projects can take around 40 minutes on their own.

Any info would be appreciated


[There are plenty of parallel versions of make for Unix systems. Surely
someone's ported one of them to NT. -John]
