Thanks, Robin.

I am aware of that solution, but that would imply editing the latex file
once for each chapter, and adjusting the arguments of \includeonly
accordingly.

I am rather looking for an automated procedure (e.g. through a Makefile),
that I can use each time I make a correction or an addition to my notes,
if you see what I mean.

I know it's ... not straightforward, but I'm even thinking of making latex
print out the first and last page numbers of each chapter in a separate
aux/log file, and then using these with dviselect. (It certainly works
with selecting a given page range.)

Thanks you all for your precious suggestions.

Giuseppe.
