Way back when I was building LFS4.0 on my Pentium 100, I recall glibc
took over three and a half days to compile...that was with 64Mb RAM
though, and 128Mb swap. Since that event (took three weeks in total to
build LFS) I have used the cross compiling hint and my main desktop
running a VMWare instance of LFS CD to build my system and burn to CD,
then boot Pentium from that - works fine, build time is only a few
hours for current LFS + a few extras, resulting CD image is 34Mb
