In the past, on my slow Windows 1.5Ghz machine, I've set it at 10
minutes (-l600). This doesn't just depend on hardware though. Compilers
take a very variable amount of time for the same code. But at 10
minutes, it's fair to say that anything that takes longer than that
should be looked at for work around to make it take less time.
