Michael, as long as I remember and noticed, in Delphi without run-time
packages if one uses "Build" every reachable pas source file is rebuilded in
a brand-new dcu file (regardless of the dates and dcu internal info). As for
optimization, I never even switched it off, but for conditional defines it
was a safe way to ensure that all my 'penitum-only" ugly optimization
windows won't show up in final project :) Hope I will finally find similar
safe ways in Lazarus
