IIRC, most of the time (wallclock, it really doesn't use much CPU) in
these scripts is taken up by kpsewhich (there is a short phase of disk
activity at the beginning that corresponds to building of the ls-lR
database).  I've never observed it taking _this_ long however, so I
suspect that kpsewhich had/has forking problems on the OPs' system.
