It does change.  My SBU is not the same as yours.
It is system-dependent.

Like in the lfs book, it is a good estimate of how long a compile takes.

For example, in the OpenOffice compile hint, is Tushar says his system
takes 12 hours on a PIII-850Mhz.  The first thing that came to mind was,
how many SBU's is that?

Thus, the request.  :)
