For desktop systems it doesn't matter how long it takes to boot, what
matters is how long it takes to load a getty or a dm ;).

In my current system, an Pentium III @ 450MHz, the runlevel takes 8
secs to be up, but gettys are available at 4 secs, or less, i'm not sure...

My system is somewhat deviated, so a normal LFS may take a bit more,
but the gettys/dm will be up as soon as possible, that's the beauty
of initng, it does it without any effort :).
