This is a 450MHz SPARC on my desktop, which is probably about as slow as 
anybody will come across (note: unless running as a Qemu guest):

$ time fpc -i >/dev/null

real    0m0.028s

$ time fpc -h >/dev/null

real    0m0.137s

$ time ppcsparc -i >/dev/null

real    0m0.020s

$ time ppcsparc -h >/dev/null

real    0m0.112s
