build times

something i measured a week or two ago is how long it took to build mysql 5.0 on my new development box (on linux). mainly i was measuring to see if it mattered whether i redirected the output to /dev/null, a file, or just let it fly by on the terminal window. it turns out that didn’t make a different at all. doing a full ./BUILD/compile-amd64-debug-max on my machine, with a populated ccache, takes about seven minutes (without ccache, it takes a little over fifteen minutes). just doing the configuration part (the -c flag to the build script) takes a minute and a half.

i have to admit i was a little disappointed by these times, i was hoping for faster. but then i compile on some of our regular build machines, and i am happy. some of those are painfully slow.
