Depending on your machine, number of cores, available RAM and disk speed
it may take any time between 2 and 6 hours, in bad cases even more,
worst case your build starts swapping with too little RAM (8GB
advisable, more if you build with debug).

For example, 4 cores (8 CPUs), 16GB RAM, SSD and a handful of
localizations (which each take extra time to build help and resources)
still takes 2-3 hours.
