Thanks for your note. I understand that process creation on Windows
is slower than on Linux. But what I'm seeing is off by a few orders of
magnitude.  Cygwin on Windows 7 on a Sandy Bridge Core i5 with 4 Gig of
memory is PAINFULLY slower than even my 7 year old Power PC Macbook G4
running Mac OS X 10.5 with only .75 G of RAM.  Something is definitely

The total

	./ && configure && make && make check

process takes close to 45 minutes!  On Linux, it takes under one minute.
On my Mac, under 5 minutes.

Short of "remove and reinstall", is there anything I should look for?
