By long, I mean long.  It takes a while for the shell to start echoing right
away, and I can deal with that.  But I can maybe get "./nat" before it stops
echoing straight away.  I mean, I still completely type in the command "./native-install"
but it takes anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 or so minutes for me to actually
see the completion of the command.

And after native-install started, it took about 15-20 minutes before it ask
me what country I was in for tzconfig (that is the second package configured
I believe).  There's gotta be something I'm doing wrong, I just can't figure
out what it is.
