FreeBSD buildworld benchmarks


Ok, I'm probably going to be getting a buildbox soon. I want to know what I should buy. All you people running FreeBSD out there: Could you please run `time make buildworld`and post the results below, along with a description of your hardware?

EDIT: Numbers I've seen so far (here and elsewhere):
3h8m34s real, 2h35m9s user, 37m43s sys -- 4.7, Dual PPro 200, 512 MB RAM, RAID1 2x 7200 RPM SCSI (cperciva)
51m2s real -- 4.9, Celeron 1GHz, 384 MB RAM, 5400 RPM IDE (sigma)
44m0s real, 32m54s user, 9m11s sys -- 4.8, Duron 1GHz, 768 MB RAM, 7200 RPM IDE (miha)

22m real -- 4.x, Pentium 4 2.0 Ghz, 1GB RAM, RAID1 2x15000 RPM SCSI

Funny, I was just doing a run last night. I didn't get the sys+user breakdown, but the total buildworld took 51 minutes, 2 seconds.

Celeron 1000 MHz, 384MB RAM, 5400 rpm 30GB IDE drive (UDMA100).

Not exactly a killer system but it's not for frontline use.

Which version were you building? (5.x takes longer than 4.x...)

Thanks; the reason I'd like to see them is to know how I/O bound the build is -- if the sum of user and sys times is much less than the real time, that means it probably spent lots of time waiting for disk.

Thanks for those latest numbers. In case anyone is wondering, I will be posting my own times later today. Eventually. When they finish.
