    Ok granted, my system isn't cutting edge but on my laptop 8.x takes 66 minutes, 9.0 took a whopping 271 minutes, over four times as long. Is this all due to clang? As it seemed to be on clang files a lot when I checked it.

    Yeah, CLANG takes a long time. You can add to /etc/src.conf:
    Code:
    WITHOUT_CLANG=yes
    
    That'll prevent CLANG from being built. See src.conf(5).

    Ok thanks. I assume clang isnt essential then yet?

    Not yet, as far as I know kernel and world should build with CLANG. But there are still some ports that fail to build with it.
