This all depends on experience.  Actually I think there is a sweet spot. 
  Too much experience and people want to customize the first time and 
run into problems.

The best time for a very experienced LFSer is probably about 4 hours on 
a reasonably fast machine.  For the first time, a newbie could take 
anywhere from weeks to infinity.

3 to 5 days are both reasonable estimates.
