How long does it take to compile KDE4

I'm trying to install in KDE 4 and it's been stuck on 
Generating k3iconviewsearchline.moc

for about 4 hours now.  My box is a an amd64 (running amd64 kernel) 1.8ghz 
w/1gb RAM.  I know that this request is quite "relative" based on hard 
hardware and such, but from those who have installed KDE4 from ports, can you 
give me the times it took you to compile?

There are two reasons I haven't stopped the process yet.  First, it's not 
acting like it's stuck, e.g. top shows that the system is 0.0% idle and the 
process, automoc4, isn't steady on a specific number it keeps going from 
~92% - ~98% WCPU usage.  This would seem to indicate that it's not stuck in a 
loop doing the same thing over and over but is really doing some work.  
Second, I've been around long enough to know that sometimes you just have to 
wait . . . a long time.

Any ideas on time to compile would be good.
