Makes sense...

I'm officially envious.  A 26-hour savings is nothing to sneeze at.

That would be the one.  I'd be interested in the build time for it as
well.  If your iceweasel build time is indicative, I'm guessing you
might complete qt4-x11 in about 15 hours as a single-process build.

In unrelated news, I've been trying to get someone's attention over on
linux-kernel to assist with the system freezes when I try to run either
KDE4 or Gnome-3 with KMS.  The 3.2-rc3 kernel seems a bit better than
its predecessors, but I *think* what's happening is simple memory
exhaustion.  No panic messages, extreme system sluggishness just before
it goes completely unresponsive, etc.  Of more than a little concern is
the number of do_entUnaUser suppressed callbacks showing up in syslog as
the desktop session process startup proceeds.
