I'm using an 450MHz AMD K6-III with 192MB RAM and found the compilation 
given in LFS-Book 3.2 very close to mine.
Actually, compiling is not really a matter of processor power! Anybody
care to have top running during a build? My machine was close to idle
for quite some time. Disk I/O and memory size play a much greater role!
