I am attempting to use 'bitcoin-testnet-box'[1] with Debian-packaged bitcoind, version 0.6.2.2-1.
I ran 'make generate-true'.  About a dozen bitcoind processes are keeping CPU usage at 100% since then.  The machine is a SheevaPlug, so not very powerful.

After about 40 hours, 'make getinfo' reports


bitcoind -datadir=1  getinfo
{
    "version" : 60202,
    "protocolversion" : 60001,
    "walletversion" : 60000,
    "balance" : 0.00000000,
    "blocks" : 45,
    "connections" : 1,
    "proxy" : "",
    "difficulty" : 0.06249911,
    "testnet" : true,
    "keypoololdest" : 1358451121,
    "keypoolsize" : 101,
    "paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
    "errors" : ""
}
bitcoind -datadir=2  getinfo
{
    "version" : 60202,
    "protocolversion" : 60001,
    "walletversion" : 60000,
    "balance" : 0.00000000,
    "blocks" : 45,
    "connections" : 1,
    "proxy" : "",
    "difficulty" : 0.06249911,
    "testnet" : true,
    "keypoololdest" : 1358451119,
    "keypoolsize" : 101,
    "paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
    "errors" : ""
}


When can I expect to have some coins?
