Fail Fast in Eclipse?

Is there a way to make Eclipse abort the build process as soon as the first compilation bug occurs? I've been working with Flex Builder 2 for some time and one of the things that bugs me is that if a base project has an error, Eclipse still tries to compile all of the other projects which depend on it. While sometimes this helps show all of the possible errors that might appear, more often then not, I don't want to waste the time waiting for the failed build to finish. This has become especially true since adding some external Ant tasks to handle other build features that Eclipse isn't doing out of the box. I've been over the preferences but didn't see anything that made sense so if you happen to know, please pass along this nugget. Keep in mind I'm running Eclipse 3.1.2 and can't upgrade to 3.2.
