4.7 - is this correct?

middle of compiling the Webkit module. I know compiling on windows is slow - 
but this bad? Windows runs in a VirtualBox VM, Guest Utils are installed, the 
sources and Mingw are in a shared folder. I would try to move everything to a 
virtual hard disk next - does anyone know whether this would help?
