There are too many options to really nail that down. It varies due to
hardware, build options, caching, and the version of FreeBSD. The
fastest machines take minutes, slower ones several hours.
With every go-fast option enabled on this Xeon E3 system, a full
buildworld and kernel takes about twenty minutes (excluding LLDB).
With few or no changes to source, that can be repeated in under two
minutes, because it's all in cache thanks to bdrewery's build system
work (NO_CLEAN and ccache).

No, although one version of FreeBSD usually has pretty consistent build
