Why would you want to do this?

Apologize the dumb question, but I have never used the GoAhead server:
Do these files contain configuration information you need to change per
application? If yes, these files should not be built as part of the BSP
or need to be redesigned. If no, there should not be any reason to
extract them from the per-bsp source-tree.

Which host-machine/OS is this?

30min is extraordinary sloooowww.

*Full builds* of the source tree for one BSPs take very much less on my
1GHz PIII Linux-PC. 

*Rebuilds*, after having changed some source-files, can take from few
seconds up to the time a full build takes.

It's almost trivial:

Comment out the corresponding lines from the corresponding Makefile.ams,
add references to these files and rules to the Makefile.am you want them
to be compiled and rebuild the Makefile.ins.
