HA! Got ya beat! 486sx/33 with 8MB RAM. Glibc took 27 hours. :) The
whole system, IIRC, was in the neighborhood of 5 straight days (all
scripted and non-stop with the exception that I set the script to wait
at make menuconfig as I didn't already have a preconfigured .config to
copy over). I used a partition that had a xcompiled LFS on it (that took
45 minutes to build from my main system) as the host. It was purely for
the hell of it. At least I know my memory isn't toasted....yet. :) 


You [should] not examine legislation in the light of the benefits it
will convey if properly administered, but in the light of the wrongs it
would do and the harm it would cause if improperly administered
