(I'm compiling the FreeBSD port just to see how long it takes)

@angristan It’s become a lot longer than it used to be. Mostly because of Rust. First needing to build Rust itself, and then compiling Rust code which is also very slow. Compiling Firefox used to take an hour on my Athlon XP 2400+.

@angristan I'm not knocking it. I'm using it on an old 6 core xeon, 12 hyperthreaded cores, and firefox uses all of them. The experience is appropriately snappy.

@angristan I tried compiling it for Wayland support once... ran out of swap space before it completed :blobderpy:
