Slow builds of Windows Mobile applications

The file is %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\{newest framework version}\Microsoft.CompactFramework.Common.Targets. Open this file for editing (as administrator), and add a 'false' condition to the PlatformVerificationTask.

The line you edit should look like:
Name="PlatformVerificationTask" Condition="false">
