I don't think timing the spec builds is that useful except for gcc, and that
information is more usefully obtained by measuring the time for a bootstrap
which is a figure that is itself useful. I am going to see if we can extract
useful information automatically from the ACT nightly builds.
It would also seem helpful to have Mark produce some typical large C++
progrmas (perhaps one more conventional in style, and one using amazing
template stuff aggressively) and build these every night timing the build
