this makes me think back to Jan or Dec (i think) when i was on the MacBSD
mailing list because i thought i was going to be picking up some surplus mac-
m68k stuff.  guy with an LC-II (or an even earlier model) said it took 17 days
to compile a kernel on his machine.

now _that_ is what i call fast. :)
