One caveat -- if you're building a miniITX system based on one of
VIA's processors, you should either have a lot of time on your hands,
or plan on using distcc to let another machine help with
compilation. gcc is extraordinarily slow on VIA CPUs, probably
because of their limited cache sizes. If you offload some of the
compilation to another machine with distcc, things will go much faster.
