For advice, some things (even what seems a smaller source code) can 
sometimes take longer.

e.g. On my notebook (atom single core with HT @ 1.66), I can build a 
custom kernel in 42 minutes.  My server amd64 can build a custom kernel 
in 10 minutes.

Yesterday I built Inkspot on my notebook - 4 hours nearly ;)

So until you build, you just do not know - just don't stop it.
