What that's nothing, Ian Chilton has the record right now me thinks...
on this m68k MVME147 (8MB RAM) he compiled everything throw and NFS
mount, IIRC

bintuils: 8 hours
gcc: 29 hours
glibc: 67 hours

Just a small taste... allthough i couldn't tell unless you counted it

I'm not much help with old hardware..sorry, hopefully someone else will
respond ;)
