A lot of that time is for the atlas library. If you already have that
installed, octave builds a lot faster.

According to the port's Makefile, scilab doesn't work with GCC
3.3, and then asks for GCC 3.2, which doesn't seem to work on amd64.
Since 6.0 uses GCC 3.4, try removing the following lines from the
port's makefile, and see if it works:

# Scilab broken with GCC 3.3 on FreeBSD 5.3
.if ${OSVERSION} >= 503000
USE_GCC=        3.2

IIRC, they are test programs from the atlas build.
