Rik, Luigi:

Excuse me for jumping in, but here are a few more data points,
using a slower system. I built 2.4.8-ac7 with the following kernels, using:

time make -j2 'MAKE = make -j2' bzImage

to produce the output. Yes, I know this is overkill for an UP system.
This version of time is GNU time 1.7. Each kernel build was performed
right after the boot and login, running KDE 2.2 and an xterm.

The system is UP, PIII 450, 384 MB, ATA-33, /usr/src mounted ReiserFS
on a WDC WD102AA, the rest of the system ReiserFS on a WDC WD136AA.
