[OSM-talk] rendering map tiles with mapnik - hardware requirements

we at OSM New Zealand are looking at rendering our own (NZ-only)
tiles, and we'd like to get a rough idea of the hardware requirements
we will need

are there any rules of thumb for how long it would take to render a
given lat/lon bbox, using mapnik?

i assume lat/lon is the independent variable, although i guess
density/complexity of data will affect things as well.

disk space, cpu, ram, time would be useful
