This would be an interesting feature, but it is complicated by the
possibility that the compilation environment is built up in a typical
large Franz system, by processing the whole file. I think that the
interlisp situation is usually simpler.
For example, in recompiling Macsyma, sometimes a file itself or
function definitions in it do not change at all. A "macro definition"
file which is included in the compilation environment can, however, change
the generated code, substantially.
Something like UNIX's "make" might be needed.
Alternatively, you can use smaller files...
