and best for 2015!

I wonder, has anyone tried to use ninja instead of make for building ports? I keep hearing it's orders of magnitudes faster, though that might be true mostly for incremental builds.
Still, any performance gain could be of interest for larger ports, or even huge ones such as calligra I'm currently trying out ...

How would one set things up for this?
