How[edit]

Untested!

Become root.

sudo su

apt-cacher-ng *might* speed up compilation. Not exactly compilation, but *might* prevent downloading the same source packages over and over again from the internet.

apt-get update
apt-get install apt-cacher-ng
export http_proxy=http://127.0.0.1:3142
apt-get update

ccache *might* help speed up compilation. Consider installation of ccache.

apt-get install ccache

There is also distcc, a distributed compile cache, but setting that up on a cluster looks more complicated. Consider using distcc, perhaps later.

Install apt-build.

apt-get install apt-build

Keep the defaults for now.

As per /usr/share/doc/apt-build/README.Debian.

echo 'Package: *
Pin: origin ""
Pin-Priority: 800' > /etc/apt/preferences.d/aptpinning

As per /usr/share/doc/apt-build/README.Debian.

dpkg --get-selections | \
	awk '{if ($2=="install") print $1}' > /etc/apt/apt-build.list

System wide rebuild.
