$ emacs -batch -q -no-site-file -f batch-byte-compile <source-file(s)>

will compile .el files into .elc files and speed up emacs.  If you are
using the Debian emacs package, all of these files should already be
compiled.  Most distributions of emacs functions (implemented in .el
files) provide instructions on installation that includes how to compile
or a Makefile that does this for you.
