Is it reproducible? Reproducible when running on a plain Pingus source tree
without the Gentoo stuff around it?
Have you made sure that the drive is ok? Might be some bad blocks that are
causing things to slow down, 'dmesg' might have some error messages in that
You could also try a wrap 'strace' around that find to see if anything
weird is going on.
