In past years, the complete installation would take way less than an hour. Ok, the overall package has grown, but not by a factor of 2x-4x I think.
I somehow get this creepy feeling that the perl unpacker is lagging or something. Hard to tie down.
It just used to me so much faster. Or maybe I'm just getting older? :-)
