Better would be to compare Koji's build times for the packages (though you'll need to factor out the root.log time due to different dependencies). Bonus points for getting builds from the same host at low load.

Basically, your comparison is: "more" C is compiled by a top-of-the-line CPU in one minute than some random build farm hardware can test "less" C++ code. Never mind that the build farm builds also start by doing lots of PyPI installs (mostly cached) whereas the kernel build goes straight to building stuff.
