CMake HEAD got faster reinstalls

On Friday Brad King announced on kde-buildsystem@kde.org "Repeat installations are now lightning fast", today i tried the CVS version of CMake (cmake version 2.5-20071007)

Well, it's not lightning fast, but it's a considerable win, here kdebase went from about 240 seconds to 75 seconds, so congrats to the CMake team and thanks for improving CMake in a continous way!

I think it's fair to say that repeat installs are now lightning fast. Before the install step make goes through all the directories and does... things... which (now) takes longer than the actual install step.
The best thing is that your system doesn't become unresponsive due to the surge of disk i/o when installing everything *again* as it was before.
