Re: GCC 4.1: Buildable on GHz machines only?

Actually I want it to complete before I even start, but I don't want
to get too greedy. :)

What's really sad is that for cross-compilation of the toolchain, we
have to repeat a few steps (build gcc twice, build glibc twice)
because glibc and gcc assume that a near-complete environment is
available(such as gcc needing headers, and glibc needing -lgcc-eh), so
even really fast machines(2.4Ghz P4) take an hour to do a cross-build
from scratch.
