running :make in the background

Eric Roman
I would like to use :make to build my projects

the problem is it takes a very long time to build, meanwhile vim is blocked
for editing/viewing

As a work-around I do something like:
$make &> errorfile
:cfile errorfile

Is there a simpler solution, i.e. to have :make run in the background?
