BTW: The time to build debug/c++/complex/sequential/64bit version of
petsc on a 8core [16 HT] windows machine with cl/ifort [via win32fe]
using gmakefile is:

balay at msnehalem2 ~/petsc.clone
$ time make -f gmakefile PETSC_ARCH=arch-uni-cxx-cmplx -j 20 > gmake.log

real    1m23.668s
user    0m30.656s
sys     1m14.297s
