The fraction-of-time-to-setup feature comes from the fact that portage
(package manager) does most of the work for you - and that was exactly my
point - emerging xorg-x11 is much less time-consuming than downloading,
patching and compiling it manually, which is not something everyone can afford
to invest time into.

Note that I politely ignore your binary-distro argument.
