Developers: fast build, without recompiling dependencies?

CP2K developers,

Is the any way to build exe without recompiling ALL dependencies?

A couple of years ago the standard make target did not recompile all 
dependencies. As a result minor code modifications recompiled fast. Now, 
make carefully creates a list of all dependencies and recompiles all of 
them. Nice safety feature but recompiling minor local changes seems to take 
forever, debugging becomes a major pain.

Is there any make TARGET that can build exe by recompiling only the 
modified files and their corresponding libraries?
