Isn't that the distribution that has you compile everything locally?

After watching a U1-170e grind it's way through the 9_Reccomended jumbo
patch (all 130 Meg of it!), I can only imagine what compiling
*everything* in a distribution on that machine would be like! ;^)

(In hind sight, I probably should have dropped the jumbo patch on an
external HD, that probably would have sped things up considerably!)
