off FancyIndexing - to no avail)

Obviously it will take mod_autoindex a while to build a webpage with
15,000 lines... But it will also take your browser quite a while to
render it.
You might try fetching the page to a file with wget or curl (thus
eliminating the browser rendering time) so you can see where the real
bottleneck is. It could be it's mainly rendering time in which case
speeding up apache or pre-building the page won't make any difference.
You might also wonder if a webpage with 15,000 lines is of any use to
the user (how do they read all that stuff?) - but, hey, what do I
