This is comparable to my experience with RQuantLib. My last build took 17
minutes wall time in the (unoptimised) pbuilder, so call it a minute for
setting up and closing the pbuilder.
Now, RQuantLib is just five small C++ files ... but it links against the
huge-ish QuantLib. This used to take maybe minutes, but right now takes
forever. The link step alone is eight minutes (!!) on an aging dual AMD 1.8
MHz --- but with ample 2 GB of RAM. So it's not that I starve g++ and ld of
Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
