I recently improved the performance of the Xml po4a module.
I also think it was too slow. (even more when a lot of tags were added in
the Docbook module)
This does not really provide a solution, but it might point the culprit.
I think using po4a with a config file (instead of po4a-updatepo and
po4a-translate) is faster.
I don't know if the Makefile has the right dependencies to avoid
rebuilding every time if no changes appeared in the English version and in
a given PO file (I don't even know if this situation happens).
