Unlikely to be a factor, as pretty much all of the time is supposed to 
be spent in the native application - the same one in either case.  Of 
course, I can't explain why Perl runs nearly comparably on my machine 
and dIon's, but the builtin "echo" statement seems to run nearly two 
orders of magnitude slower on dIon's machine.
