The entire build from start to finish and that includes booting into
the new system was about 4 or 5 hours. I did not keep time by exact
measure. Just noted about when I started and about when I finished.
One of the big reasons it did not take longer is because I created a
lot of shell scripts and ran them one after the other. Making sure my
shell scripts were right took a lot longer.
