Try to "emerge/update" a gentoo, especially
when time to recompile gcc and kernel comes ... ;-)
I did for a while, with the assistance of an "s390x-crossdev"
Intel machine, using "distcc".
Still not fast enough for my taste, with the emulator,
and the crossdev system, running over nice Intel multicore
processors(4-emulated, 4-crossdev), with plenty of memory ;-(
From the other side, it is fast enough to do basic things,
like compiling small packages or personally developed
Not fast enough for compiling the compiler, though.
Infact, now, my s390x-gentoo is "frozen" to the April 2016
emerge. Updating the system is too much an effort.
