"A LONG time. I once compiled (or attempted to compile) Mozilla on an athlon
"800 MHz. Took nearly 3 hours. Now if you reckon that a Sparc (at least with
"GCC) will compile native code very roughly 3.5 times slower then a PC with
"the same clock speed... [1] Well, you can always try, but don't blame me if
"it takes a week :-)

and my old sparc, even with weitek, is only -80- MHz...  hence my
grumbling about pre-compiled pkgs.
