http://www.nslog.org/latex.html has a table. Even with an adapted 
command (disabling Terminal output which wins you 10 seconds or so on 
this run):

time pdflatex source2e.tex >/dev/null

real    0m17.377s
user    0m16.100s
sys     0m0.580s

This 1.2GHz G4 is slow. A 1.4Ghz Pentium III, 1 GB RAM mit Debian Linux 
3.0 clocks in at 7seconds or so.

Why is TeX so slow? How do I find out what is going on?
