Yes, that's the right and simplest thing to do for the moment. I filed bug:

The main problem is that there's no core.resources provided way of
building references, or knowing that you're being built as a result of
a reference.   So the platform has no consistent way of doing this.
CDT MBS took the approach that the top-level project implicitly builds
the references.  This actually invalidates things like build delta,
but it's what it does...  So MBS + the currently launch does a _lot_
of building.

I think a better solution is to provide a utility class in cdt.core
akin to that can be delegated to by all the places that want to do
build - pressing the build hammer, launches, ISVs - and do the right
thing for our builders. For Helios we could just put in the expedient

It's nice to see multiple people evaluate a situation in isolation and come up with the same opinion :-) (I had not seen your bug report). I'll tackle this today. I think it's low risk and fairly easy to implement.
