[webkit-dev] WebCore Build Times

Has anyone spent any time trying to reduce the number of includes in
WebCore?  I know we have:

But I feel like we still have way too many unnecessary includes.  I
failed to find any tools for reducing build times or includes with my
brief Google searching.  But perhaps others have looked into this
problem for WebKit or other projects?

On my Intel Core 2 Duo MBP a full build takes over 1 hour.  5 years
ago, on my g4 laptop a full build took around 40m.  :(  We seem to be
slowly moving in the wrong direction.
