It's about 20min to compile the compiler on my 2GHz, 6GB system; you
need to compiler the compiler twice on a bootstrap, plus a little more
time to compile the runtime and tools. Certainly no more than 1hr.

Running bin/regression from the sources will run the regression tests.
But otherwise, any existing SML program that works with MLton should
have the same behavior.

No, you don't need to set PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
