Just a thought, I looked for the issue on making emerge a bit more user friendly by wrapping the whole compile process by some sort of a compile progress monitor. (I looked for threads on the issue but the search here seems a bit crippled :>).
So anyway, I've seen some scripts to count the number of source files in a folder and while compiling count the number of compiled objects.
I know this method is not very accurate, as source files != number of objects in most times (for portability issues and the likes). But is there any way to know for sure the current stage of the compilation? I think it can add a lot to portage.
And for the more tech oriented crowd here (most of us I guess), we could always use the verbose flag :).

So anyone thought on this issue? Objections? Idea? Already in progress work?.

in lfs they define the compile time this way:
compile a certain packadge with your system
and then all the times are given with this unity
for example if K is the time that you system spent to compile this packadge
it will spend 10K for compiling kde for example...

Search for "emerge progress wrapper" and you'll get loads of hits.

The canonical thread seems to be this one: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=42346.
