  Don't forget multi CPU systems. I think the effect would be pretty
dramatic when you scale up to SMP.  Well, even without SMP harddrive
latencies give you plenty of time to do other things. That's why I compile
eveything -j2.  I've clocked it at almost twice as fast, just because it
works on a different part of the compile every time one part has to wait for
the disk. YMMV
