We do have cross-compiling:
But if we have things setup to run without cygwin/make on Windows, we
can probably do a full compile in the same amount of time on Windows
without having to have a second machine or VM to do it.
Chambers is quoting 30-120 seconds for the unmanaged part.
Based on my work, I would guess about 4-5 minutes for the managed part,
significantly less if parallelized.
The linux buildbots are currently taking about 25-30 minutes to build.
I don't know why that is, they used to take around 7-8 minutes to build.
