I can let you use a SheevaPlug which meets your requirements.
I've done a test build on it and a complete build takes about 23 hours,
almost all of it CPU time. It isn't i/o limited and hardly swaps at all
- it just sits there with the CPU at 99.x% user mode for hour after
hour. One link operation alone took over an hour of solid CPU usage.
It's there if you'd like to use it, and it isn't doing anything else.
