I just did a checkout on CygWin using http of the ffmpeg git repository
I put online some time ago:
pissaris at pissaris ~/src/b
$ time git clone http://lumumba.uhasselt.be/takis/git/ffmpeg.git/
Checking files out...
100% (599/599) done
So, for ffmpeg it's certainly not hours :-)
And this is the full history of ffmpeg, up until this commit earlier today:
