A question in case there are emacs people listening here: what's the  
order-of-magnitude normal compilation time for emacs? It's been about  
14 hours that I've launched the compilation of GNU emacs on my  
PowerBook G4 (1 GHz, 512 MB RAM), using the DarwinPorts infrastructure  
and the instruction:

	sudo port install emacs +carbon

which means essentially  
Portfile>) picking up a CVS GNU emacs and compiling it with options  
--enable-carbon-app=${destroot}/Applications/DarwinPorts". I've  
verified with "top" than things are actually happening, in the  
beginning "bootstrap" was busy and now I can see that "Rez" has been  
running for about 5 hours, taking about 80% CPU.

Please be kind, this is practically my first compilation, I cannot  
pretend to really understand what's happening.
