In the spirit of complaining about compile times :-) ... I like to
build my freebsd ports tree from source. Every time webkit2 needs
an update, my box (which I admit is no longer super-fast, but is
not exactly slow either) takes well over three hours to grind
through it, using all eight cores. (I never timed it, I always
just left it to its own devices after a while.)
Much of this can be blamed on the complexity of compiling C++
in general (the "best type" matching rules are not simple).
