Assuming that the 40 min includes building all libraries and tests and
running the tests, that doesn't seem to be all that long as far as I'm

Here at home I use b2 and library_status to incrementally and run build
tests for one library. (usually but not always the serialization
library, naturally). It takes couple of minutes for a complete build on
my more or less modern desktop - Mac mini with 256GB SSD and 4 cores. I
don't think that's a major problem. When I'm working on fixing
problems, most of the build/test cycles are incremental so in practice
it's not problem at all. FWIW I use XCode project generated from CMake
for debugging and b2 to check with gcc compilers before I checkin. Both
seem to take a similar amount of time.
