severe pkgsrc system usage

just installing all pkgs new and I am noticing a real high system usage 
when compiling with pkgsrc.  Plus because of this compilation is dog 

I think this is because of libtool->pkgsrc toolchain wrapper (lots of 
stuff)->objformat->cc (finally!)

we need to find a way to speed this up.  This is a Duron 1200 with 
384MB RAM, so not too shabby.

So either we can find out what exactly is slowing the stuff down and 
fix it in kernel or we need to tweak on the toolchain.  Having a 
package build system which is so MUCH slower than ports won't make us 
new friends.

Ideas somebody?
