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. :->
