There is something weird - Just ran same test again to see whether it
was a fluke - it still take 1h12 - however I saw the oppersite of Joerg.
The "systat -vm" Freemem was permently on 2,2GB - this on a 4GB
system that normally shows a 1,2GB - or less after a buildworld.

hmm. Pawel are there tests that can help?
