FWIW, my phenomII X6 1100T (3.3ghz) does amd64 "release iso-image"
in about 35 minutes.  so for 24 cores at 2.1ghz to take 45 minutes
is pretty slow.

thor:  4 years ago, the amd64 build was a LOT faster due to no 32 bit
compat.  that adds at least 25% to the build time, IIRC.  are you
comparing it with modern builds?
