BTW, I once calculated (test plus extrapolation) how long it would take
to rebuild every package in Mandriva on a low end 2 GHz Celeron server
that I had available and it came to about 80 days.  

Usually one won't rebuild every package all in one go, but one has to do
that the first time.  So, a build system needs to be a big ass piece of
iron, otherwise it will be frustrating to use.
