It takes 11 hours on a triple-core machine at -j6 to build and package GCC.
In order to guarantee consistent reproduction I always respin the built
package from -src package through two generations. It then takes three to
five days to run enough of the testsuite to be confident that the packaged
compiler works well. So it'd be next week at the earliest.
Hence I'm uploading 4.7.2-2 now.
