How about compiling different build times gathered from various machines
(one with a Pentium 90, one with a P2-400, another with an Athon 1GHz,
etc...). Then it would look like this (I made up the figures) :

Installing GCC-3.1

Estimated build time on a  Pentium 90   :  5 hours and 45 minutes
Estimated build time on a  P2-400       :  48 minutes
Estimated build time on an Athlon 1GHz  :  27 minutes
Estimated required disk space           :  180 MB
