There seems to exist a texnique to dump a special FMT. AUCTeX is set
up to work in a similiar, but I don't know whether the (La)TeX file
needs to have the necessary preamble plus \begin and \end of
{document). I doubt that it can work to leave these statements away...

Why can't you just comment the chapters/files you've already finished
in your master document? Then you can easily recompile it time after
time.
