[Lazarus] Spurious package rebuild

I'm in the habit of building Lazarus from clean using  make bigide 
rather than rebuilding from inside the IDE. Part of the reason for that 
is that until recently a couple of the platforms I use here (SPARC and 
ARM) did not have a functional IDE due to alignment issues.

Over the last few weeks I've noticed that the first project I build 
inside the IDE also (re)builds a number of packages before it gets onto 
the project, this takes a significant amount of time on a tight system 
and is particularly inefficient since a chunk of RAM is occupied by the IDE.

If these packages are being rebuilt, what can be done to force them to 
be built correctly during the initial make?

If they are not being rebuilt, what needs to be done to force them to be 
built during the initial make?
