On my x86_64 machine (dual 2.8GHz Xeon EM64T) it's on the order of two
or three hours --- I haven't timed it carefully, but somewhere along
there.  That's just for the core regression tests, I've never tried
contrib or PL tests.

It should be a separate animal, and not something that an existing one
does every-so-often, or we might mistake anything it finds for an
irreproducible transient failure.  Consistent failures on the same
animal will stand out of the noise, though.
