I should clarify that for the majority of the 20 minutes mentioned (approx.
19 minutes), the command was stuck at "---> Building boost". After around 40
minutes, with a bit over 0.7GB of HDD space remaining, the command printed
the line "--->  Staging boost into destroot" to the Terminal. HDD space is,
however, continuing to decrease at about the same rate.
