The configure stage of gimp takes about one hour and ten minutes in my syst=
It is a pentium II 400mhz with 160Mb RAM, over a gigabyte of free space.
The top delaying process is sh on piperd state, eating no more than 3% of C=
PU time.
14938 cetrox    -6    0   232K  720K piperd     0:00  2.57%  1.76% sh
Other sub-processes are make and sed, working fine.

I've seen this problem building several packages, what could it be?
