Gurgle is your friend.

Do you have a more specific question?

PeterG:
This is the best explanation i have found.
"Compiling is the act of turning source code into object code.

Linking is the act of combining object code with libraries into a raw executable.

Building is the sequence composed of compiling and linking, with possibly other tasks such as installer creation."
