IIRC, about 10.5 hours when my 200MHz 64MB P55C (MMX). That was *before*
/static and gcc-3.2.

With /static and gcc-3.2, an IBM6x86-II (Cyrix II) PR-300 (233.xxMHz)
w/256MB went from 6.5 hours before statis/gcc-3.2 up to 8.5 hours for a
complete LFS install. My guess would be you are looking at a full 10 - 11
hours for full LFS.

Disabling i18n (all the locales) can shorten it an hour or two.
