True - depends on the speed of your machine as to how annoying this 
really is... (I'm using a PIII 1.26 GHz... takes 5 min with -O2 - good 
excuse for a coffee etc).

several of the various CVS work-arounds in the docs, so people at least 
get a good survey of the options - they can then choose whichever suits 
their needs best.
