Okay! It took a few tries for me to recognize that it was 

Once I set it, it took 26 minutes to build Rust - that’s more like it 

Good to know that there can be some really long build times... for our 
lower specced build machine at work, I’ll configure a cron job to 
update the ports tree and build on the weekend. That way we should 
hopefully avoid any long build times in our CI.

Thank you for the guidance!


p.s. I do know about -b latest to fetch dependency ports... starting off 
I would like to see how full builds work.
