what platforms you want/can run fate under for fate.ffmpeg.org ?
or do you want to setup some private fate?

cc should be "ccache gcc-4.1.2" when you have ccache available, its
a bit faster as it requiires fewer compiles

extra_conf="--disable-debug" mighty make it a hair faster too and
reduce space requiremnets if you are short on space
