building GHC on a cluster

recent "GHC build times on newer MacBook Pros?" thread makes me 
wondering if someone already attempted to build GHC on a cluster of 
machines using for example PVM GNU make[1] for this or any other tool ( 
or even custom generated bin/ghc-stageX scripts using rsh?) which is 
suitable for the task. I'm asking since build of GHC HEAD on my 
ARM/Linux (OMAP4 1GHz) using both cores takes around 7 hours and yet 
buying another 3 machines might be well in the finance envelope of hobby 
project and speed the development which usually happens only during 
weekend's evenings...
