Anton, FYI, one of my builders can build clang by 5 to 6 minutes (with
just-built-clang w/o Assertions).
It is; AMD FX-8350, 32GB of RAM and Intel X25-M G2 SSD, Linux x86-64.

I know it will be faster with more expensive box. Working in progress...

I strongly suggest you may throw away Windows out of the window :p
Otherwise, I suggest you may take cmake and ninja for (mingw32|msvc).
They work better. Feel free to ask.
