 It won't be finished before I go to bed (and if I'm really unlucky I'll
have to turn it off to cool down, building with gcc-3.3.3 thrashes that
box hard in glibc and X), and because firefox comes way down a script
which runs after X has been built it will probably be sometime tomorrow
p.m. (UTC+1) before firefox is finished.

 In the meantime, building chapter 5 with rc1 (host is the current
5.1-pre2) the glibc tests got as far as resolv/tst-leaks.out and timed
out.  This is a lookup for which sounds
suspiciously related to the sort of browser slowness I've seen.  Maybe
this was hidden by earlier failures on the host, but if so it's odd that
it should appear in chapter 5.  At least the chapter 6 glibc passed all
the tests (except posix/annexc, which gets ignored).
