Hi guys,

I've recently been using poudriere to test news ports but this resulted in
building two large ports, namely:
- devel/llvm [1]
- lang/rust [2]

Now, lang/rust takes 2 hourse to compile. So testing for 13.0, 12.2 and
11.4 means around 6 hours in total, a lot of time for my desktop
computer. Especially if the dependencies are upgraded later on.

Do you have any tips to deal with such long build time ? Apart from
have a dedicated server :)
