How long does it take *you* to build wine?

OK, got some numbers building 20021125 on my home machines:
30min : 750MHz PIII laptop
17min 21sec: dual 650MHz PIII, 7200RPM disks, make -j2
16min 1sec: distcc on the dual 650MHz as localhost, 750MHz laptop, and a 1.1GHz celeron, make -j4
And on another machine not at home:
8 min : dual 1.2GHz P4 Xeon, make -j2
So the fastest build I've seen so far (not including
configure or make depend) is about 8 minutes.
distcc seems to help a tiny bit.
it's kind of looking like I should get a faster motherboard
if I want sub-ten-minute builds.
Next step should be to measure benefit of using ccache
when searching through cvs for the patch that broke something,
but I'll probably just go out and get a faster motherboard.
I want one with gigabit ethernet onboard; pricewatch says
$320 for an Asus A7V8X with "2400" Athlon XP,
$353 for an Asus P4PE with 2.4GHz P4. Hmm.
I bet either one of those would get me Wine builds below ten minutes...
Does anyone have a good recipe for building an inexpensive
machine that can build Wine quickly?
