Instead of compiling it on the disc, you could consider trying
creating a package and installing that instead. That way build time is
seriously reduced, and its easier to test new versions.

Since you have a configure script this should be straightforward: run
dh_make in a fresh checkout. Choose a single program.
Edit the generated debian/rules file to look like
#!/usr/bin/make -f
        dh $@

        dh_auto_configure -- --prefix=/usr/local --with-logdir=/var/log/rasdaman
And add the packages that are needed for building to debian/control

Try building a package: run debian/rules binary in your source directory.

more info:
www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide (or apt-get install maint-guide)

Anyway, I haven't tried whether it works, but this is the normal procedure.
