I'm pretty sure there are underlying problems, it appears to have been 
bombing out part-way through setting up the content of ~/.lazarus which 
contains an incomplete set of files.

I think that some of the performance problem might be an emulation or a 
guest kernel issue: I can see one of the kernel processes throwing a 
regular exception and this is probably wasting a lot of time.

I'm dropping this one for the moment to get back to rebuilding a test 
system and trying to re-run the SPARC tests. Apart from that I've got to 
get back onto other things I'm trying to work on (programmer's block )-:
