At last I got to doing this. I built gtk2 alone, timing a 'make'
just after a 'make extract', inside a virtual machine with NetBSD-
current and up-to-date pkgsrc.
The current gtk2 package took 32m41s (real time) to build (wow,
that's a lot more than it used to take not-so-long-ago!). If I
disable the 'demos' and 'tests' directories, the time is cut to
25m32s, so the speed savings is 7m. This was run on a Core 2 Duo
2.16 machine (host; virtual machine is a bit slower ;-), so the
savings will be much bigger on older machines (but I'm lazy to try
now because it will take a long while...).
