I assume you mean doing a complete, from-scratch, build of the entire
source tree, by doing a make in /usr/src?

Here is the tcsh "time" output of my last full build (from 1.0):
	11132.886u 3536.241s 5:31:58.46 73.6% 0+0k 235159+97691io 0pf+0w

Translated, that's 5 1/2 hours of user time.  I have a 486DX2/80 with
20MB RAM (64MB swap spread over two disks), two SCSI-2 drives
connected to an EISA-bus bt747s, and 512k write-back level-2 cache.

It used to take me three to four days on my old 386DX/33 with 5MB of
RAM and IDE drives, though. :-)
