Perhaps I'm missing something, but I don't see the relevance of this,
even if it were true that C compilation is only a small fraction of
the build.  There's nothing to prevent a parallel build from compiling
2 Lisp files at the same time, is there?

Btw, byte compilation is only relevant to bootstrapping.  A normal
build of an Emacs tarball spends mots of its time in C compilation, I
think.  Don't you agree?
