you have to built the whole office only once. Later on it's enough to 
build only the module where you have made changes. The changed library 
can be copied in the office installation directly.

A simply find should help to find the correct place.

Well the whole thing becomes more complicate when you change config 
files, IDL, help content or something similar that is not code directly. 
This kind of changes trigger more dependencies and I would suggest that 
we discuss this on demand here on the list.

I hope this helps, otherwise feel free to ask again. Especially when you 
have question where to find the relevant code I am sure somebody here on 
the list can help.
