A few compilers (MSVC, BCC, ICL), but not gcc, inherit from 
PrecompilingCCompiler and support precompiled headers using the 
<precompile> element, it  There are definitely a lot of hoops that you 
go through to get the benefit of precompiled headers, but there can be 
a tremendous speedup.

gcc3 added support for precompiled headers, however there isn't a 
compiler adapter for  gcc3 yet.
