With 8GB of ram and a no name SATA SSD a refreshing git pull and clean through make install takes about 3min 30s.  Are you passing a -j 3 or similar to the make?

i have done -j X in the past, but for the sake of the question, left it at default for all kit.
i think running -j 2 on the server does bring it down to 10-12mins. haven't yet tried it on the Celeron, but maybe do it overnight when the FE isnt in use and use 'time' to see how long it takes with -j 2.
