Not arguing that. I'm suggesting that perhaps one of the kernel debug
options is pessimizing compiles across the board. It took me 12 hours
to do a 'make world' when I had debugging options enabled in my kernel.
I took them out and now I can 'make world' in 4.5 hours. I would expect
that ratio to hold for all compiles and not just 'make world'.

so.. running with a kernel with debug options causes my compiles to
be almost 3 times as long. That's all I'm saying. What does your
kernel config look like? Do you have all of the debug stuff turned
