	I thought I'd mention that it seems
to me that the speed hit is in the
construction of the list of
dependencies, not during actual
linking. If you put "set -x" at the
top of libtool and link something
like evolution-mail, you'll see the
list of dependencies grow larger and
larger till it takes up almost the
complete screen.
	Fortunately, since we have
gnome-config et al, we don't need
libtool's smart 'dependency libs'
included in the .la file. The
attached patch to turns
this off and makes a huge speed
difference for me:
	Before: > 8 minutes to link
	 After: ~ 4 seconds
	Obviously this is not the "right"
solution, but if you're getting
frustrated at Evolution taking 5
hours to compile, this may help :-)
