There is some code (in i386, maybe not in amd64) that will generate
a histogram of system calls count/times by call number.
(It probably isn't enabled in generic as it adds code to the entry/exit paths).
When I was writing this I did notice that the build is rather dominated
by open() - probably actually failing opens! (looking for headers)
Quite possibly this single threads.
The build could (probably) be speeded up by generating a single directory
containing symlinks to flatten out the standard -I directory list.
