Ok, so I did a cvs checkout of the devel kernel last night and timed a
simple 'make ppc'.  That built both the UP and SMP ppc kernels, with all
the associated -devel and -debuginfo packages.

This was done on a dual-cpu G5 with 1.5 GiB of DRAM running F9.  Gnome,
Evolution, X-Chat, and Rhythmbox were running, but it was otherwise
unused.

The results:

real	117m16.886s
user	133m27.480s
sys	20m47.314s

How does that compare with koji builds?
