...and if you need to compile still faster, you can use distcc and
ccache on a farm of little ARM boards... though doing this on a
heterogeneous network of 200MHz ARMs in 2006 to bootstrap the armel
project was fairly excruciating, it should be less painful today.
The hard limit is that, for big packages such as GCC, you need more
than 256MB of RAM.
