[Interest] Faster Qt app build

On Windows, building a Qt app is blazing fast. It seems that jom takes the cpu cores to it’s maximum power. 

On Mac the GCC builds are really slow and passing the -jX argument doesn’t seem to make any difference. Is there a way to speed up builds? My projects have a lot of files now and compiling a build can take around 5 minutes on a i5 2.5 dual core CPU.

Any tips?
