[cdt-dev] CDT Build - What does "Updating Project..." actually do?


Some of our users of the CDT are complaining about poor performance.  Well,
there are many contributors to this, but one in particular is a post-build
delay. After the makefile has been built, the build continues to run for a
while with the "Updating Project..." message.  What is it doing?  With some
of our projects, even if trivial builds, this can take 30 seconds or longer
(granted, there are a lot of files in the project).

For this particular project, there may be 500 C/C++ files, but only a
handful are used for the build.  There are likely thousands of files total.
These files are coming from a linked resource.  It is a standard make

If I can determine what is occuring at this time, I can begin to eliminate
bottlenecks (is it the network, the CM system, etc?).
