Avoiding excessive compiling after a rebase

I like using the rebase feature. In particular, I'm rebasing applied MQ 
patches after pulling from the central repo.

This workflow does suffer one flaw (from my PoV) in that in my usage, 
the rebased files are all rewritten to disk. This has the conseqence of 
needing to rebuild these files, even though much of the time the rebased 
files haven't been merged during the rebase. My rebuild time can be 
significant, 10 minutes or more if a rebased header has many 
dependencies. And multiple configurations will require more again.

Has anyone considered touching the non-merged files to their original 
timestamps following a rebase?
