Well, this is just a shot in the dark, and I'm no expert, but I think 
that perhaps a lot could be done.  I've found that a lot the time of 
configuration is spent doing things like 'ldconfig', once for each 
library as it is configured, rather than waiting til the end and running 
it only once when all libraries are installed.

I think this may be an area that warrants further analysis.

Bad - You get pulled over for doing 90 in a school zone and you're drunk 
off your ass again at three in the afternoon.
Worse - The cop is drunk too, and he's a mean drunk.
FUCK! - A mean drunk that's actually a swarm of semi-sentient 
flesh-eating beetles.
