   I know what you mean: I have only 3.6G of RAM (and 2G of swap, but I use
only very little of it and very rarely) and llvm, qt5-webengine and openoffice
are my nightmares...

   When I use poudriere, to reduce compilation time of dependencies, I just
copy the package llvm60 to
/usr/local/poudriere/data/packages/<jailname>-<porttree_name> from an
already compiled package (at the moment I test all my ports on the same
FreeBSD version, so I have not had any compatibility problem yet).
