Hiya

Im all for one compiling software for ones self, BUT the fact that you 
mention system freezes and a slow system is very suspect.

Its in your best interest to get a live cd and run memcheck and more 
importantly check your hardware.

Also have you check your machine, by using system tools such as

top, netstat, vmstat, iostat, lsof etc, basically to check what your 
machine is doing and whats it up too.
