I also noticed that configure time has gone up tenfold on Linux. From 
"done in basically 5 seconds" it not takes over a minute.
So of course on Windows where shell scripts are way slower the hit will 
be much more severe.

Not sure how the recent merges might have caused this. Maybe it's just 
the increased length of the library list, as every dep lists their deps 
explicitly now?
