build-first: window-specific variable
Default value: 0
Epsilon normally displays each window line by line, omitting lines
that have not changed. When a command has moved point out of the
window, Epsilon must reposition the display point (the buffer position
at which to start displaying text) to return point to the window.
However, Epsilon sometimes does not know that repositioning is
required until it has displayed the entire window. When it discovers
that point is not in the window, Epsilon moves the display point to a
new position and immediately displays the window again. Certain
commands which would often cause this annoying behavior set the
build-first variable nonzero to prevent it.
