My dual athlon make -j 4 buildworld differed by about 16-20 seconds on
a 36 minute buildworld.

So you are seeing a about an hour slowdown (16% slowdown on 6 hours is
1 hour) from before/after?  Or are you seeing an hour slowdown from
4.x -> 5.2-beta?

Also, so we can characterize where the suckage happens, how much
RAM/CPU does your system have?
