For me it has so far taken a lot longer.  The problem is that the
number of dependent packages is probably 100s.

If you want something simple to test out which should complete in a
few minutes, try this example:

Also, for libguestfs (~150 packages) we aggressively configure squid
so that it caches everything properly.  Unfortunately just installing
squid is not sufficient, you have to configure it as well:
