As relative benchmarks:
  • Building the kernel on architectures in the ~500MHz range can take ~40 minutes. Building the kernel on architectures in the ~1.5GHz range will take ~10 minutes.
  • Building userland on architectures in the ~500MHz range will take ~12 hours. Building userland on architectures in the ~1.5GHz range will take ~3 hours.
FWIW.
