    Both use gcc 3.2. The desktop pentium III is very old. Slow ram/bus may
    be the
    reason. Or this may be the fastest a pentium iii 1 MHz can perform?.
    Large RAM don't help pentium III. It doesn't need them here.
    Large RAM should help Cursoe a lot. CMS should use those RAM as traslation
    cache and put the entire processes (make, gcc, as) in it.
    I guess 17.x min kernel compile time result from CMS still taking time
    interpreting x86
    code (because it decide to do so to conserve translation cache space?).
    I wish the linux kernel could hint CMS to do a better job, if possible, like
    when to interpret, translate or fully optimize and save-to-disk for
    later use.
