Building ghc from source

Am trying to get a latest ghc + haskell platform + cabal setup on my laptop.. I have built ghc-7.4 from source… now here’s the time it takes to run make on amd athlon 64×2 running on a 32-bit Ubuntu 11.10 with 2 GB RAM..


time -p ./configure
real 32.47
user 12.16
sys 4.77


time -p make

real 10345.75
user 8729.29
sys 1045.89


sudo time -p make install
real 121.08
user 54.49
sys 8.96
