If you are on a _slow_ machine, an estimation of how long something
will take is often welcome. But we don't have anything useful to use
in the native build. I think Manuel suggested (some months ago) the
time to build and test tcl : my experience is that with gcc-4 this is
sufficiently different from the old SBU that it won't usefully carry
through to b(c)lfs.
For space, I like knowing how big things are going to be, but again it
doesn't seem possible to do it for the cross-build, only once we are
But then, I'm a traditionalist in lfs terms - I like to run the
testsuites, and I get worried about failures.
