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/
walk 3d2ec3062e8d2a99f3597f9df07dd2841b912296

 100% (599/599) done

real    1m15.296s
user    0m44.191s
sys     0m4.683s

So, for ffmpeg it's certainly not hours :-)

And this is the full history of ffmpeg, up until this commit earlier today:

commit e1fbf41adf320ce6c44b790bd2229e2f1f8abf1b

    Allow conditional compilation of H.263-related decoders.
