I'm confused. I have been using poudriere for several years
to build sparc64 packages. 2 * single core 1.5GHz CPU, 16GB
RAM, 2 * 72GB SCSI-3 disks. Yes, it can get disk-bound,
especially I am not using ZFS. No, it's not particularly
fast. Yes, the machine is solely dedicated to this task.
I do believe poudriere will struggle on the smaller ARM
boards, solely due to the RAM limitations. I intend to do
some further investigation.
