Identical. Only changed the CC and CXX variables to point to a different
compiler, and edited Makefile files when needed.

I originally specified a rough range of 10 to 15 seconds as opposed to the
roughly 20 seconds. So I'm bordering on 50% since I'm too lazy to write
"anywhere between 50 and 100 percent and to play it safe...

I guess these are times when you take things very literal, whereas I'm not
specific enough when I should be.
