The first time I built LFS in qemu I thought I did something wrong.  From 
'power on' to login prompt was about 2 seconds.

I have found that building LFS in qemu takes about 150% of the time on HW. 
  I don't know if I set things up properly or not.  What I use is usually 
some variation of:

qemu -enable-kvm -boot c \
      -drive file=/mnt/qemu/deb71.img \
      -drive file=/mnt/qemu/lfs.img \
      -m 2G \
      -cpu host \
      -smp 2 \
      -vga std \
      -net nic -net bridge \
      -machine type=pc,accel=kvm

But I haven't done this recently.
