Let me repeat what Emanual said recently.

	heaven. it must be heaven. :-))

My DS5000/33 with 40MB memory compiles GENERIC about 50 minutes.

It's somehow interesting to compare NetBSD/pmax with NetBSD/alpha.
DEC3000/300, a natural descender of Personal DECstation, has 150MHz
21064 CPU with 64MB memory, and it compiles TC-only configuration
about 40 minutes.  Even taking the fact NetBSD/alpha is larger and
complicated into counts, 60MHz R4400 seems archieving very good
performance.  I know 200MHz 21064 machine DEC3000/800 with 256MB
compiles TC-only configuration about 20 minutes. 

I'd have the R4000 upgrade module. :->
