What's the speed of your box? I recently did an emerge --emptytree
world on my 1.6G Pentium M laptop. It had 446 packages done in less
than 29 hours (I say less than because if would run long stretches at
a time and stop after failed downloads here and there because of
wireless problems... for all I know it could have been sitting there
waiting for me to fix my wireless router for a couple of hours or

So if you have a comparably fast system, with not too many useflags
enabled, I'd say that 120 packages in 6 hours is quite possible. 


   As a math atheist, I think I should be excused from this.
