I asked the build time earlier.  Here is Joel's answer:

"I have it record the build time for each package, so if I just add the
average build times it gives around 6 days to build all the packages in
core, extra, and community. That's for a single core build on one
machine. I usually build multiple packages on each machine at once as a
large portion of the time is often spent downloading sources. "
