Umm... perfect opportunity to boast a bit. =8^)

That's where a faster system is nice! =8^)  Dual dual-core Opteron 290s 
(older tech now, but top of the line 2.8 GHz), compiling into tmpfs for 
scratch-space so all those temp files never leave memory (all 8 gigs 
worth of it), with the sources on a 4-way RAID-0 and the system on the 
same 4-spindles RAID-6.

With ccache shortcutting the compilation of stuff that's unchanged, 
compiling pan is a while-you-wait job of a couple minutes, not that I've 
actually timed it. =8^)

I can even recompile my entire system, 674 packages, in a day or so, and 
that's not fully parallel optimized compiling yet. (There's still a bug 
in portage that kicks off the parallel merging after the first hundred 
packages or so, out of 674, so 500+ are done a single package at a time, 
tho where the single package can parallelize, it still does that.)
