You'll want to link, install, test, and remove. But, yes, doing it from
a pre-existing pair of piles of object files is faster than what I was
thinking of. :)

'Blackchapel, for most of its history, was a quiet little village.
 Indeed, the noted traveler Ustav of Leramont, one of the first human
 beings to visit, noted that a day spent in the village was, as he put
 it, "as exciting as watching two pieces of granite involved in a
 staring contest," and added, "I eagerly looked forward to my night’s
 rest as a means of relieving my ennui."'
