I think the speed of the build hardware should be also part of the criteria,
as all primary architectures are built synchronously.  GCC on x86_64/i686
currently builds often in 2 hours, sometimes in 4 hours if a slower or more
busy box is chosen, but on ARM it regularly builds 2 days.  That is a slow
down factor of 12x-24x, guess for other larger packages it is similar.
