I found out that disk I/O is terribly slow on Docker for macOS. I had to
give up on my build after several hours because of that. So I tried
"Mutagen", wasn't able to make it work, and kind of gave up and moved to
the next thing on the pile of things to do... 

Today I just found one possible workaround, involving docker-sync. I'll
give this a try and report back.
