IvyDE cannot have control of when the build occurs, Eclipse is handling them. 
And Eclipse triggers a build each time the classpath change.
But maybe we can improve IvyDE so it will try to do a batch of ivy resolve 
rather that launching them in sequence. There is already a batch ivy resolve 
job which is the "Resolve All" button. You could probably reuse that kind of 
job each time IvyDE have to recompute a set of containers.
