The compilation buffer prints out start and end date for my compilation. How can I make it also tell me how many minutes & seconds it spent?

I'd like something like: Compilation started at Thu Mar 16 09:10:44 [..] Compilation finished at Thu Mar 16 09:13:04 Compilation took n hours n minutes n seconds

    Perhaps an "around" advice to the compile function? Store the current time at the start, again at the end and print out the difference to the compilation buffer. – NickD Mar 16 '17 at 22:02
