You are materially impacted.  AutoQA won't run until the entire build is 
complete.  Updates cannot be prepared until the entire build is 
complete.  Buildroots won't be updated with the build results until the 
entire build is complete.  You won't know if your build /fails/ on the 
arch until it's done, etc...

Having one arch significantly slower than the others absolutely creates 
material impact upon developers.
