Phil,
A month is most likely about right for most of these type
of complex boards, but only if there are not
constant changes made or the fact that key info
needed to do the layout has properly been
available. Not just libraries and an outline need to be there. But I have
seen that month grow
by a couple weeks easily because of this kind
of stuff.

Unless your bidding an absolute drop dead complete date
a month later, than you just have to work 30 hours each day.
