Well some of my builds go for about 6 hours and include
close to 100 targets. This is running on with 128 MB memory. Most
of these targets aren't javac stype targets thou (mainly
java targets).

The largest build of java files I have seen is about 1200
.java files and this works fine on linux with jikes. I heard
it brakes on win32 thou. I believe comments have been in
list archive. Basically it broke sending more than 400
parameters to commandline program. This can be fixed but is
yet to be (unless done it latest exec work).
