No worries, my little confusion came from `make release` being a bit picky:
1. I need to buildworld first (can use -j switch, make release will
not call it).
2. I need to buildkernel first (can use -j switch, make release will
not call it).
3. Only then I can run `make release` (cannot use -j switch).

I get as good result as I need with memstick and iso images in around
19 minutes plus I can build CURRENT that way.. now I may be ready to
cross-compile :-)

Thank you for the reference! :-)

A bit better but very similar result, thanks for reference.. and the
SSD hint :-)

With this power I can compile a clean firmware for my projects based
on ARM mbedOS  in 2 minutes instead 12 minutes (as compared to laptop
build) and connect the build to a git hook.. then speeding up a bit
could return a binary right away as a result of git push :-) :-)

In a free moment it would be fun to play with FreeBSD on ARM.. I have
tried that several times before but with no luck.. and I really have
different boards around to test :-)

Again GREAT THANK YOU Ruslan for your time support and all hints!! :-)
