What did you compile? How fast is your 4-CPU Opteron?
The Dual 265 compiles 6.0/amd64 in ~21 minutes when using a single 
ATA100 disk. A 265 have the equal of two x44 cores so a box with four 
faster CPU:s with their own memory should compile in less time.

Anyway I'll rerun the test on some of the boxes so we can see how much 
disk IO affects the result.
