1.57.0 takes 4 minutes, and a complete x86 build plus cleanup takes 10
minutes, resulting in 2.03 GB of headers and DLLs/LIBs. Neither seems
especially onerous, aside from the fact that the Getting Started
documentation doesn't say to use a parallel build, which is *really* bad.
That's different to running regression tests. Regression tests that I've
run take somewhere around 4 hours ;-) And that's with a parallel build.
