That still sounds like the most sane way to go; provided those problems
are/would be fixed, I hope for that switch to happen again one day.  (I

Indeed, ccache helps greatly.  Now that I've managed to cut down package
times as well, situation with LLVM ports no longer looks as bad as I
originally saw it; thank you.
