amarok (1.4.3-1) just finished building on aahz using distcc with a cross
compiler running on my P4@2000 notebook with 1GB RAM. It finished in 9:20h
with this setup. A previos build (version 1.4.1-2) on aahz took something
like 13h, on crest it was 15:20h (version 1.4.1-3). Usually newer versions
of packages take longer to compile, not less, so the looks like a 25-35%
speedup to me. With a three year old notebook as crosscompiling machine.

All times are pure build times from the buildlog, total times, including
package installation are a few hours more, as you can see here:

In the buildlog you will notice some distcc messages, that happens when my
router is reset once every day. I need to find a better way of resetting the
router, right now I switch of off every morning for 15 minutes. The cheap
IKEA timers can not switch for less than 15 minutes...

So, should I upload it? Next in line is binutils, cross-compiling for native
compilation, interesting...
