Those two points doesn't surprise me.

I have noted in previous email to this and possibly other boost list
that the 5GB of disk space is more like 50GB, at least from my
experience with Win+VC.

Running the complete test from scratch even without downloading from SVN
clean take way more than 12 hours here (an oldie dual core 2.2GHz 4GB
RAM running test on only one core), which is partly why I don't run the
test regularly.
