[Rd] speeding up R compilation

First, a small advert for this:
which lists functions in core R going back to 3.0.1.
Second, I'm trying to extend this back to 2.0.0. That involves building
many versions of R from source on a Docker image of Debian Sarge. (Shades
of 2006, when the Linux desktop was around the corner, just as soon as I'd
finished compiling this *^&%* software...)
This is obviously quite slow. Do list members have any suggestions for how
to maximize compilation speed of (old) R sources?
Currently I'm doing:
CFLAGS="-O0 -pipe" FFLAGS=-O0 ./configure --with-recommended-packages=no \
--with-libpng=no --with-libjpeg=no \
