How long is long? Copying those few thousands files takes like 20sec for
me, which seems fine.

Potential issues I can imagine:

* something funky is going on with the current working directory and 'find'
ends up searching around elsewhere on the drive
* your specific version of 'install' is extra slow for some reason

Other then that I can't think of much that could be going wrong, it's a
pretty basic install routine after all.
