first time a couple of hours or so

second time:

if you build dep (i.e. only the changes) - <2hours, often <1hour

if you build clobber (i.e. make clean then build everything again) - 2 hours (as first time)

depends on your machinery

Thanks for that answer. I started to build it last night and then went to bed. When I awoke, I was greeted with a segfaulted machine.

So, I will be starting over.
