The tarball is almost 100MiB and it unpacks to roughly 0.75GiB, because it contains tons of generated html docs and other stuff that is not needed for building. Unpacking it on Cygwin takes several minutes (done in parallel, but still) and even on Linux the unpacking takes longer than the actual compilation.
