 I'm tryng to make some new BIF's - can anybody enligten me as to
what the minimal make incantations are to recompile my BIFs.

 So far I have changed and binary.c (in erts/emulator/beam)

 A top-level

    make clean  

	takes a zillion years always seems to work
    make emulator

	appears[1] to work and is somewhat faster, but still can take a
long time

 What is the approved method with the fastest turn-around time?


[1] not always ??? - once I got a beam loader error which vanished after
make clean
