(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)
It keeps on getten' asked, so here it is:
$ time make -j8 real 0m41.105s user 1m55.404s sys 1m49.693s
But the surprising bit is:
$ time make -j6 real 0m37.042s user 1m52.107s sys 1m41.501s
This was with subversion 1.3 after a minor header tweak.
