What do you mean with slow?
The first time something is compiled, Linux has to load a lot from disk.
Do you have enough ram?
Compiling a lazarus application the first time can take 6 seconds and
the second time 1-2 seconds, including linking.
If you started Lazarus in a gnome terminal, then it will be slower.
Well, "fast" is relative...
FPC is clearly slower than Delphi and Kylix compiler; I'd say it feels
like Delphi is two or three time as fast as FPC.
OTOH, FPC is several times faster than Mono, gcc or MS VisualC.
And I'd say it's on par with Sun's javacc...
