So, the compile was actually /faster/ than the configure. :> Total times

Configure:	28 minutes
Compile:	24 minutes
Install:	<1 minute
Total:		53 minutes

So 1 SBU is just about an hour. I am doing binutils right now, so we
will see if this pattern holds true. At that time, and binutils being
2.05 SBU, it should take me 109 minutes.
