The first time you run, it'll construct the whole tools
hierarchy. This means doing a fair portion of the build twice (once
to get the build tools, again to get the installed tools). After
you've got your build environment set up this first time, the tools
should only be updated if they're actually out of date (unless you
force a full bootstrap every time; you probably don't want to unless
you know something's breaking and not getting noticed as being out
of date).

So, the next time you use it, the process should be faster.
