The "SBU measure" is a very rough'n'ready type thing. One should not
expect that one can run the build on something which takes 2 SBU and
from that know how long, to the minute, another package taking 2 SBU
will take. It depends on how much swapping takes place, how much RAM
you have, how fast your discs are relative to your processor, what
bus speeds you have, etc., and two packages with identical SBU measures
are not going to take identical amounts of time.

JHALFS is not part of LFS, it's part of meta-LFS.

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.
