I don't hope so, that would make using a tool like "make" or "ninja"

Depends. When everything is build already then it's more or less constant, if
some dependencies are not fulfilled yet then it takes more time as it compiles/
generates them.
The bottleneck is the initial checking of the state of the dependencies, i.e.,
if any source files got changed and need to be reprocessed. Running "make
install" directly gets rid of one such pass.
