I haven't rebuilt my sparc in awhile.  I can do that this weekend
though.  I certainly hope it hasn't become that much slower, because
my sparc is slower than yours!  The builds on my dual-CPU athlon
look like they're about the same time with gcc 3.2 vs 3.3.  Are you
just seeing this on sparcs?  If you're saying it's only on the
sparc platform, then how much does cross-building take?  (building
for sparc on i386).

You're saying it is taking three *times* longer?  ouch!
