Sounds almost like you're building an excessibly large kernel configuration.
A realistic kernel config will crosscompile within a few minutes on a
modest machine such as a 3GHz / 1GB P4-class PC.

But to lessen the pains of your aching CPU, here's a binary tarball:

The two issues are entirely unrelated.
