You can give the compiler options with something like:

  CFLAGS="-O3 -ffast-math -funroll-loops" ./configure ...

You could try looking at the FP options, Pango (and maybe Cairo?) used
to use a lot of floating point which caused performance problems on
machines without FP support. Though I think this is supposed to have
got a lot better recently.

You could try gtk 2.8 (or was it 2.6? I forget), this was the last
version before rendering switched to Cairo/Pango, so it should be
easier on your hardware.

You could check which theme you are using, obviously some are much
'heavier' than others. The built-in default theme is relatively light,
I think.
