errr... a lot less than an hour ;-)

Depends on your machine etc. but our complete forrest site (0.8) on my 
paltry laptop takes 5 mins 25 seconds for a site size of 8,279,006 and 
357 pages.

Why are you running forrest as a process and then building the site?

Have you tried just doing forrest site? There may be some strange 
interaction thing going on here (although I can't think what)

I've never seen that, perhaps the "strange interaction" thing I refer 
to, but I doubt it since building starts.

This is a very strange one, I've never heard of anything like it. 
Perhaps someone else has ideas too.
