17 It's easier than that, I simply emerged vanilla-sources-3.0 after deleting
18 the tarball. I did not use my digital wrist-watch which I could have done,
19 instead I looked into emerge.log. The long numbers to the left are seconds
20 since 1970, the difference is what genlop uses. The only question was
21 whether it uses the line 'emerge (x of y) category/package-version to /' or
22 '(x of y) Compiling/Packaging ...' to determine the start time.

35 I wasn't talking about the download time here, but about the total time. If
36 I emerge two independent packages A and B, which take one hour each to
37 build, what does genlop say if I use emerge -j and they build in parallel?
38 This would take about two hours for each. And indeed, that's what genlop
39 says. So genlop -t is inaccurate when you are emerging with the -j option.
