No, we tried it with jom and XGE licensed Incredibuild of course but it
is still much slower than Visual Studio build. Dependency calculation is
slower (e.g. the time that is needed to run qmake / make to just
encounter that nothing has to be done). As I wrote later Incredibuild is
especially slow due to project synchronization but that is another

Another problem that I did not mention in my first mail is that
compiling a single source code file does not work very well with qmake /
make. It should work much better with qbs.

Best regards, Jochen
