I have worked in midrange shops where where we could only build from a 
CMS library. You could "local compile" a single source file within LSE 
or a BUILD-ONE command file, but you could only build a testable binary 
from a CMS library. Every developer had their own CMS (Code Management 
System). Once we had local compiled the files we changed we had to put 
them back into CMS to build a testable binary. When we thought things 
worked we had to promote to one of the integration testing CMS areas 

Whenever we started a new project we nuked our CMS and took a fresh pull 
from Production P01.

The pain of checking in all changes before testing is paid for by not 
having to spend days tracking something like this down.
