Itâs hard to judge by looking at https://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/CompileFarm because newer and older machines are mixed together in the list, and some of the ones which are still powerful enough (gcc75, gcc76) are nevertheless a few years old. Maybe servers circa 2010 are still faster than my newish, 4x2-core laptop at building GCC, I canât really estimate.

Checking the list now, itâs less confusing than it was when I last looked in February, which could also be characterized as a decrease in variety. However, this raises the question of machines being taken offline.

Besides that, are some machines overloaded? If I need to use POWER, will there be a learning curve or brittleness as on Darwin? To avoid trial and error whilst wading into the process, Iâm just asking for some personal confirmation of suitability for my particular needs: same-day turnaround for clean rebuilds + testsuite validation. Too many days of my life have gone into setting up GCC builds (and then setting up again elsewhere when a problem comes up).
