Buildworld times on a AMD64 processor

Can someone tell me how much quicker FreeBSD runs on the Amd64 platform for
compiling worlds and or make release? Currently I can build release on a
Pentium 4 3.02 ghz in about 40 minutes (without ports) and would like to
get this down to around 10-15 minutes (or even 20).
Second question: If you had to buy a couple of FreeBSD builder boxes for
building releases and testing only, which platform would you go with: Amd64
or the Opteron?
Third question: Can the x86 codebase be cross-compiled while running
under 64 bits? Ultimately I am making x86 releases.
Thanks in advance for any help that you can offer!
