 FWIW, I spent a /lot/ of time at the beginning of the year repeatedly
building LFS on a K6-2 box, initially to tune my buildscripts, then to
see how playing with all/no tests, and all/minimal locales affected the
time and space.  Got overtaken by events, carried on with initial
upgrades for the 5.1 series.  Anyway, about one build in 6, or maybe 1
build in 10, the time for an SBU was about 10% longer.  Never did work
out why.
