make buildworld: build changes only?

I'm keeping track of -STABLE on semi-regular basis. But when I cvsup to
the latest sources and do make buildworld, it always starts to rebuild
the world entirely from scratch. That's somewhat frustrating,
especially if cvsup showed only a screenful of changes.
Is it possible to rebuild these changes only? I know I could cd to the
directory of each changed file and do a make install there, but that is
of course not quite practical. I suppose this could be automated, since
this was exactly the design principle of make: rebuild changed sources
I know this might brake some dependencies in some cases, but I expect
this to be rare. I could still do a "full" buildworld when necessary.
