Well, if you start compiling with --intermod-opt that won't work.

But it's enough to test Java or C# changes, which have to be installed
to be tested. The install_grades target still prepares the
install_grade_dir.$grade directory from scratch every time unless you
hack it, but at least you don't have to wait for the .trans_opt files
to be recreated one by one.
