I have made enquiries upstream and there are some suggestions as to how to
alleviate this issue (most of which can't be done in Lenny).
There may be some minor things I can do to alleviate the problem. One change
that I have made which will go into the next version is to only have a single
run of semodule. This drops the configure time on an AMD64 system with 64M
of RAM from 7m0.876s to 6m40.407s. It's only a 5% benefit, but still worth
