18 hours?! On my current home-server which is an Intel Atom D525 1.8ghz 
it only takes 5 hours. And these are not known for being fast at all. In 
1996 ish I was doing it on something like a pentium 75 and I think it 
still took about 5 hours. So you're right there! 18 hours seems way too 
long though.

These days it compiles things like clang which take a very long time.
